The Unpopular Government

Both the President and Congress are unpopular...very.

Congress' unpopularity doesn't surprise me. Democratic-controlled, they're not going to win GOP support, and capitulating to the President didn't help their liberal base and they've still to do much of anything, loosing them the Independents.

Bush's 29% approval rating doesn't shock me either. Democrats have completely abandonded him, as have a super majority of Indpendents, but Republican support kept him around 1/3...until now.

Only 62% of Republicans approve of the President. 32% of his own party disapprove of him. If Iraq bloodied him in his own party, immigration is burying him.

Congress is being beaten down due to Iraq, which will change providing they take on the President come fall.
