Latest Bush/Congress Poll Numbers? Grim!


It’s not exactly turning around for the President and Congress, according to the latest CBS News/New York Times polling. Some highlights:

  • Only 31% of those polled approve of Mr. Bush’s job performance and 68% believe the United States is worse off today than it was before Bush became president.
  • On handling the issue of rising gas prices, Bush’s performance rating dropped four percentage points from what it was a month ago (from 17% to 13%).
  • Congressional Republicans get an eviscerating review in this poll. The GOP gets a favorability rating of 37%, exactly 20 percentage points lower than where it was in 1994. Inversely, Democrats in Congress had a favorability rating increase of 11 percentage points over what it was in 1994.
If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.

  • Are you under the impression that these numbers mean something? Mean ANYTHING? When Congress has a 25% approval rating it’s obvious that the poll was set up to generate low numbers. I’m surprised that you were fooled.
