Congressional Approval Ratings Fall to Single Digits for the First Time Ever

Well, late yesterday Rasmussen Reports published the results of a poll that came as quite a blow to the Congress.  For the first time in Rasmussen history (and any polls I could find), the approval rating for Congress as a whole has dropped below 10%.  Here are the detailed results:

How you rate the way Congress is doing its job?
Excellent – 2%
Good – 7%
Fair – 36%
Poor – 52%

This is down 2% from last month, when 11% approved of the way Congress was doing its job.  In terms of who approves, Democrats approved only 13% of the time, down from 17%, but Republicans approved 8% of the time, up 1% from last month.  Independents are the most critical, only giving Congress a thumbs up 3% of the time, down from 6%.

For more details, view Rasmussen’s full story.

In comparison, a Rasmussen poll gave President Bush an approval rating of 32%.

So, for all of you who just hate Bush, go do something about the Congress this November as well!  I just find it hilarious that Democrats mock Bush for his low ratings, and then polls like these come out.
