Congressional Approval Down, Bush Holds Steady

A new Gallup Poll finds continued low levels of public support for both Congress and President George W. Bush. Twenty-nine percent of Americans approve of Congress, down slightly from last month's reading (33%) and this year's high point of 37%, while Bush's approval rating is holding steady at 33%. Both the ratings of Congress and the president are slightly lower than their respective 2007 averages. Approval ratings of Congress are higher among Democrats than Republicans, while Bush's ratings are much higher among Republicans.

Goodness, I thought that with the "new Congress in town," the Dems were certain to do a better job than the president in the eyes of the public! Where's that "change" that America voted for back in November? Could it be that this is not the change voters were looking for at all? All the dithering in Congress about funding the war as long as there's a definite defeat...er, redeployment date doesn't seem to be working out quite as Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid planned. I can't wait to see what Plan B is.

Mike at Flopping Aces figures,

So, using the standards that were previously applied to President Bush by the left we may now demand that Congress, led by Democrats must abandon their policy of retreat in Iraq as well as the other planks in their socialist "ruin America" agenda.

Indeed.

Why is it that we are pummeled with Bush's low numbers, but rarely hear about those of Congress? Could the MSM be biased???

There's no bias in the mainstream media. These aren't the droids you're looking for. Move along, move along.

The frustrating thing is that the low approval numbers won't be highlighted by Republicans and used as political fodder the way Dems use Bush's low numbers. It makes me wanna pull out my hair that Repubs shy away from fighting the Dems with their own (slimy but VERY successful) tactics.
