Even MORE important is the TREND lines.
Congress' disapproval numbers are RISING steadily and have been for some time. People are hating them more every day.
Their approval numbers continue to FALL.
Bush's approval ratings are actually rising.
Contrary to popular opinion, Bush does not have "the lowest ratings in history."
Harry Truman left office with only a 22% approval rating and now he's a virtual Saint among Democrats and Republicans for his good common sense.
He never went to college, ran a men's clothing store before getting into politics, and was widely mocked as an inarticulate dummy.
People were horrified when he dropped two atomic bombs on Japan.
HIstory often tells a different tale.
If you saw what this Congress does - or fails to do - on a day-in, day-out basis, you would wonder why their approval rating is as HIGH as it is.
They have redefined "miserable failure."
Regardless of who wins the Presidential Election, the American public is likely to be stuck with them again for two more years.
