Congress now rates below Bush

From the fellows at Powerline:

They Don't Impress 'Em Much

How many times have you heard that President Bush's approval ratings are low? Guess what: the Democratic Congress's approval rating is lower.
For some reason, this hasn't been getting much press. But the low esteem in which voters held Congress prior to November's election barely changed after the Democrats took power in January. Today, Gallup notes that the modest bounce Congress experienced in January and February is now gone:

The modest uptick in approval of the job being done by Congress has dissipated for the most part after only two months.

According to Gallup's monthly update on job approval of Congress -- in a March 11-14, 2007, national poll -- 28% of Americans approve of the job being done by Congress and 64% disapprove.

And if the DemocRATS think this is bad, wait 'till they get the results from starting hearings, issuing subpoenas, and continuing to do what they disguised as a "change in direction" that got them elected. This is doing the peoples business? C'mon MSM.........step up and print this on your front pages.
