ABC Poll: Bush and Congress at 35%

From ABCNews

People think the Democratic-led Congress is doing just as dreary a job as President Bush, following four months of bitter political standoffs and little progress on Iraq and a host of domestic issues.

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.

Maybe they’ll throw all the bums out. Might not be the worst thing that happened. Probably they will vote the same people back in and continue to moan and whine. Remember, in a Democratic Republic, you get the government you voted for, and deserve.

    I suspect the extreme partisanship and subsequent ineffectiveness of this Congress has surprised even the most cynical voters.

  2. If we vote the same bums in we certainly do deserve everything we get.

    My approval rating of our electorate is now about at 29%, lower than Bush or Congress.
