Congress Plummets In Polls - 11% Approval

Why, it seemed like only yesterday the new majority of a Democrat Congress was the cat's pajamas. They touted their First 100 Hours in which they accomplished so much virtually nothing.

And it seemed like only yesterday their approval ratings in polls was at 18%. Actually, is was August 13-16 in results from the Gallup Organization.

A Zogby Poll, publishing approval ratings of Congress on September 19, showed Congress' Approval Rating at 11%. No, that's not a typo - Congress has an approval rating of 11%.

From Zogby:

    A paltry 11 percent rated Congress positively, beating the previous low of 14 percent in July.

And, according to the same Zogby Poll:

    Only 29 percent of Americans gave Bush a positive grade for his job performance.

Still, the President's approval ratings are more than double than those for Congress. At this rate, I expect the approval rating for Congress to be in negative numbers by the end of this year.

How Low Can Congress Go?
How Low Can Congress Go?
How Low, How Low,
How Low Can Congress Go?
