Poll Finds Congress Doing As Badly As Bush

An AP-Ipsos poll published in the Guardian notes that the publics approval of Congress' performance matches that of the President, which is pretty dismal.
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.
The problem is not just Iraq, but a failure of the Democrats to move any substantial domestic issues forward as well.
