WASHINGTON (AP) — Who cares which party controls Congress? Only about half of Americans.

An Associated Press-GfK poll asked people which party they would rather see in charge on Capitol Hill.

Republicans finished in a dead heat with "doesn't matter."

Democrats fared only a little better: 37 percent of those polled would prefer Democratic leadership, compared with 31 percent each for the GOP and whatever.

A vast majority appear united around one thing: They're fed up. Nearly 9 out of 10 disapprove of Congress. Two-thirds want their current representative voted out.

And 56 percent disapprove of the way President Barack Obama is doing his job.
