WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush and the U.S. Congress registered record-low approval ratings in a Reuters/Zogby poll released on Wednesday, and a new monthly index measuring the mood of Americans dipped slightly on deepening worries about the economy.
Only 29 percent of Americans gave Bush a positive grade for his job performance, below his worst Zogby poll mark of 30 percent in March.
A paltry 11 percent rated Congress positively, beating the previous low of 14 percent in July.

So Bush’s approval rating is almost THREE TIMES HIGHER than that of congress!
Pelosi, Murtha, Reid, Durbin.....see what ya done ya dopes. You screwed the pooch.
Come on, say it with me! ... Single Digits, Single Digits, Single Digits.
That’s pretty low.
"What is your opinion of the new, Democratically-controlled Congress? We, ah, I mean, the Democrats
siezed power, I mean, assumed control after the last election. You know, the Congress who is keeping the mean and nasty George W. Bush in check, and wants the rich to pay their fair share of taxes, etc.?"
Wow, one person in nine DOESN’T think our Congress is worthless.
A blind man could see this coming the day Reid and Pelosi took the reins. When the Congressional leadership has no plans, only agendas, no ability to lead and makes it priority one to obstruct the running of this country purely for political means is it any wonder they would run the ship aground?
The problem is dem’s will say it is because rep will not allow them to implement the changes they ran on and it will all be rep’s fault and no rep has the spine to defend against the attacks.
The fact is, we do not like what congress is doing passing laws against American citizens, increasing government, costing and spending us more and them creating an unaccountable political class.
These numbers can be spun all day long - but it still boils down to the fact that MOST Americans think their government STINKS!
Something is rotten in Washington DC on both sides of the aisle. We have mass dissatisfaction and the only answer is a complete housecleaning. All of us must stop holding our noses to vote!
Woo Hoo - With Zogby saucing the polls in favor of the RATS, chances are that the actual approval rating is in the single digits.
Keep up the good work Congress !!!
That would be the membership of AFSCME.
You know, if Congress was at the highest approval levels ever there would be countless stories about how Pelosi, the first woman speaker, is so wonderful.
How come the lame stream media is running countless stories about her presiding over the WORST Congress ever?!
It’s a rhetorical question.
Remember when the MSM used to always say "Republican Congress"?
Paging Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid, please pick up a white courtesy phone.
It’s a shame that people don’t keep this in mind when they go to the voting booth.
Congress gets crappy approval ratings in polls, but stellar ratings on election day. The same dirty so-and-sos keep getting re-elected!
