AP Poll: Congress doing worse at its job than President Bush is
July 13, 2007
A new poll shows the public thinks the President is doing a better job than Congress.
According to an Associated Press-Ipsos poll, public satisfaction
with the job lawmakers are doing has fallen eleven points since May
to 24 percent. President Bush's job approval rating in the
A-P-Ipsos survey remains virtually unchanged at 33 percent.
The 24 percent approval rating for Congress matches its previous
low, which came last June, five months before Democrats won control
of the House and Senate.
Just two months ago, 35 percent of the public approved of the
work of Congress.
Poll respondents from both political parties say they're tired
of the fighting between Congress and the White House.
