Republican Poll Numbers Are in the Toilet


President Bush’s job approval rating dropped near its all-time low and Congress received poor marks as well in a national poll released Monday.

Forty-six percent of 1,006 adults polled over the weekend said they approved of the overall job Bush is doing, according to a CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll.

Over the past year, Bush’s rating has hovered near 50 percent, with a low of 45 percent in March and a high of 57 percent just after his second inauguration and the State of the Union in February. The 46 percent figure is down about 4 percentage points since a poll taken at the beginning of May…

Republican leaders in the Congress got bad marks too.

When asked to choose, 58 percent of respondents in the split part of the poll said Republican leaders were behaving like “spoiled children” on the matter while 31 percent picked “responsible adults”…

On a separate question asked of half the respondents, 48 percent said they favored the Democrats in the dispute and 40 percent favored the GOP.
