Congress’s approval rating has shot up — to 19 percent.

The latest Gallup polling shows approval of Capitol Hill rose 5 percent from August to September, and is at its highest point since last October.


Gallup said the rise for Congress comes as it battles President Obama on Syria, and the pollsters note than the president’s own approval ratings have stagnated in recent weeks.
