New Poll: The Democrat Congress Sucks More Than Ever

Posted by Ryan on July 8, 2008

For the first time in the history of scientific polling, Congress, which happens to be controlled at present by Democrats, has reached a new all-time low of a 9% positive approval rating in the latest Rasmussen poll!  Splitting it up, that’s 2% excellent and 7% good, 36% fair, and 52% poor. 

Yet, for some reason on a generic ballot question, the Dems are still beating the Republicans by over 10 points!  So even though likely voters loathe Congress’ inaction in dealing with gas prices and the war, they still seem to like Republicans less in their generic sentiment. 

I wonder if some in the voting public believes that Bush and the Congress are both Republican-dominated?  If so, Congress would at least be at 32%, right?  Though this election is going to be tough, polls like this indicate an opening for Republicans this Fall.
