The Downies are in power more than a month, they have done absolutely nothing except shake their hips at sending troops to Iraq, and the American people are disgusted already, as a new poll shows.
The Washington Post headlines the poll's results: "Public View of Congress Improves."
You can stop laughing now.
Poll: Public View of Congress Improves
Three months after a power shifting election, a majority of Americans still disapprove of Congress _ a sign of public impatience with the new Democratic majority even among party loyalists.
Still, an Associated Press-Ipsos poll conducted this week shows that Congress' public image has improved slowly but steadily since the November elections when Iraq, corruption and partisan fighting drove congressional approval ratings below those of President Bush.
According to the poll, 65 percent of those surveyed disapprove of the way the president is handling his job, slightly up from his disapproval ratings last month. As for Congress, 58 percent disapproved of the work of lawmakers, a slight decrease from last month and a 14 percentage-point decrease from congressional disapproval last October.
So, there you have it. 7% more people disapprove of President Bush than Congress. That is an improvement?
Of course, the AP cannot wait to tell us that Downies disapprove of the shit coming from Capitol Hill:
Even a majority of Democrats _ 52 percent _ disapprove of the work of Congress, indicating a desire for quicker action from the new Democratic management. Just 39 percent of Democrats approved of Congress, though that rating is a significant improvement from the 9 percent who approved in October.
The AP then interviews Downies on how Congress is doing. How about a Republican response? Of course not - it could show that Republicans cannot stand what Congress is doing. And that would make the story unworthy to the scumbags at the AP.
