22%??? Anyone have buyers remorse?
So you think President George W. Bush’s approval poll ratings are low, take a good look at the depth that the Democratic controlled Congress’s have fallen to. According to a recent Gallup Poll, GWB’s numbers have actually rose to 37%, while Congress has sunk to 22% approval rating. I guess its safe to say that the honeymoon is over for Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. Gone is the 54% job approval rating as Americans expected results from all of the Democrats midterm pre-election lies, oh sorry promises, and in return have received nothing.
Here’s a thought. While everyone is pulling those levers in 2008 voting for President, let’s toss out many of those same incumbents Congressmen and women that we are all so dissatisfied with as well? That message is to Republicans, Democrats, Conservative, Liberals and Independents. With a 22% approval rating, the only people happy with what Congress is doing is their own families.
A new Gallup Poll, conducted Dec. 6-9, finds 37% of Americans approving of the job George W. Bush is doing as president, an improvement from his recent scores in the low 30s. Meanwhile, 22% of Americans approve of Congress, essentially unchanged from last month. Both Bush’s and Congress’ ratings remain low by historical standards.
In early November, 31% of Americans approved of Bush as president — just two points off his term-low rating of 29%. Since then, his rating has improved on each Gallup Poll, and although none of these individual changes have been statistically significant, the long-term increase from 31% in early November to 37% in the new poll is.
As Wake Up America points out … “At the end of the poll results page over at Gallup it reports that Congress now has lower approval ratings than it did at the end of Republican rule in 2006”.
