Congress Approval Rating at 14% Just Ahead of Pond Scum


As the media rails on George W. Bush’s approval ratings, Congress checks in at 14% Congress_Approvalconfidence rating … the lowest in Gallup history. In the eyes of Americans, Congress is now below big business and HMO’s. How can any institution be below an HMO? You have to actually try and upset everyone to do this.  Don’t worry though Congress, you seem to still be  ahead of pond scum, pyramid schemes and axe murderers. What’s next being proud to be ahead of sex offender? How can a people who’s job it is to represent people be so out of touch?

New Gallup data: Confidence in Congress at all time low

Not to be out down, Zogby has even more shocking numbers when it comes to how immigration is being handled. As Instapundit states, “Three percent? That doesn’t quite put the possibility that no one approves within the margin of error …”

The Zogby Interactive poll of 8,300 adults nationwide finds just 3% of Americans viewing Congress’s handling of the immigration issue in favorable terms …

      Pond Scum? Can you believe the kids in my 16 yr old son’s band named it the same thing? Too funny! Glad to know they are better off than our congress…which ain’t saying much!

      this situation will never work because: you will never get a Republican president ( especially one as self centered as Bush) to cooperate with the Democrats. this also goes the other way too. you will never get a Democratic president to cooperate with the Republicans.
      it’s all political and the well being of the American citizen is not the real concern of either. if you are a president with only 26% of your country supporting you, you should probably step down. it’s only going to get worse!

      And remember … most of them are lawyers.

      This must be some kind of mistake!

      At least SOME types of pond scum are good for fishin’!!!

      Can’t say that about congress and lawyers!

      Bush is the biggest joke of a leader in the history of this great country. It’s a shame that thousands of American lives have been lost because of his arrogance and ineptness. He’s a total joke.

      #6 – actually according to most Americans Congress is a bigger bunch of losers … its just your friends in the MSM will never say it.

    8. Scared Monkeys on June 22nd, 2007 12:16 am

      I will take the opportunity to apologize to pond scum. ;)

      I hope we don’t run a poll comparing our Congressmen with our Aruban trolls here. The results must be embarrassing.

    10. Brenda on June 22nd, 2007 8:15 am

      So, Bush is worse than Clinton who liked girls his daughter’s age to take care of business below the belt? NICE!

      It’s basically the weak-willed whiners (liberal-socialist left-wingers) against the strong-willed fighters (libertarians and “evil” republicans). I know which side I’m on…and oh how I hate whining!!!

      It would be a pleasant change to have good leadship on both sides of the aisle.

      It is not good leadership to take advantage of the patriotism of a nation after a national tragedy and then use that patriotism as permission to execute a personal vendetta.

      It is also not good leadership to call illegal aliens, the very type of people that created the aforementioned tragedy, ‘undocumented Americans’, as Harry Reid did in the Congress last week.

    12. micah on June 22nd, 2007 6:32 pm

      I don’t want to hear it! Foolishly, people voted them in… Now we’ve gotta live with the consequences!

    13. patty on June 22nd, 2007 11:23 pm

      Brenda…LOL…strong willed fighters…hehehehe, you’re kidding right?!? You must be one of the 14% who think this goofy moron is actually doing a good job. Got a couple of kids in the military do you? Work for Haliburton perhaps? Got knocked in the head as a child? Geesh!

      Something is really wrong when people take this opportunity to bash Bush. Yeah, he’s not doing well in public opinion but hey, he’s 10+ points higher than Congress.

      Right now it’s not that Democratic congress and Republican president won’t work together – rather they are ‘trying’ to work together much to the amazement and anger of the American people because the American People – democrats and republicans as a majority DO NOT WANT SHAMNESTY! Congress and the President are only suppose to work together to carry out the will of the majority – not whatever they want to shove down our throats.

    15. on June 23rd, 2007 10:38 am

      Patty #13 – You aren’t keeping up. The 14% favorable rating is for the Democratic Congress. Bush’s rating is a bit higher at 29%. Perhaps it was you that got knocked in the head.

    16. nurturer on June 23rd, 2007 1:10 pm

      #12 – You are correct. The old saying, “We get the government we deserve” applies directly to us.

    17. on June 23rd, 2007 11:29 pm

      It may have been foolish people who voted them in but also remember, what they are doing now is NOT the campaign promises they ran on.

      So you can only call the voters who had witnessed or were aware of this behavior before foolish.

    18. nurturer on June 24th, 2007 1:05 am

      #17 – Then, you punish them the next time with your vote.

      Problem is, there are not that many parties to choose from and that’s exactly the way they like it.
