Zogby: Congress At 3% Approval Rating
In Handling Iraq War

The newly elected "majority" of Democrats don't fare too well in the latest Zogby Poll:

    Survey shows just 3% of Americans approve of how Congress is handling the war in Iraq; 24% say the same for the President.

    [...]

    Just 24% give the president favorable ratings of his performance in handling the war in Iraq, but confidence in Congress is significantly worse – only 3% give Congress positive marks for how it has handled the war. This lack of confidence in Congress cuts across all ideologies. Democrats – some of whom had hoped the now Democrat-led Congress would bring an end to the war in Iraq – expressed overwhelming displeasure with how Congress has handled the war, with 94% giving Congress a negative rating in its handling specifically of that issue.

    The online survey was conducted July 13–16, 2007, and included 7,590 respondents. It carries a margin of error of +/– 1.1 percentage points.

    To best show support for the troops, 42% believe Congress should fully fund the war in Iraq to maintain current troop levels.

Of course "leaders" like Nanny Pelosi and Harry Reid may be mistaken in a belief that - as in golf - the lower the score or number the better. Sorry Dems, doesn't work that way. But hey - keep on trucking. Soon you may find yourselves in negative numbers.
