Ratings these days

Heh... We all know that President Bush's ratings are low - 35% currently. Well, it seems that the current Congress shares this with the President. From The Houston Chronicle:
Poll: Congress, Bush share low approval
People think the Democratic-led Congress is doing just as dreary a job as President Bush, following four months of bitter political standoffs that have seen little progress on Iraq and a host of domestic issues.

An AP-Ipsos poll also found that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is a more popular figure than the president and her colleagues on Capitol Hill, though she faces a gender gap in which significantly more women than men support her.

The survey found only 35 percent approve of how Congress is handling its job, down 5 percentage points in a month. That gives lawmakers the same bleak approval rating as Bush, who has been mired at about that level since last fall, including his dip to a record low for the AP-Ipsos poll of 32 percent last January.
People are dissatisfied with Washington in general. Vote the lot of them out and start over again only smaller this time -- less pork and partisanship please. Posted by DaveH at May 11, 2007 7:23 PM
