Iraq is a big issue in Campaign '08, and while most of the focus has been on the presidential election, there are some key congressional races to be decided in November.
A recent poll by the Associated Press shows only 18% of Americans are happy with the work Congress is doing.
That's a new low, but analysts with U.V.A's Center for Politics say they don't expect voters to express those concerns at the polls.
Isaac Wood of the UVa Center for Politics says, "People are very negative about Congress right now, but if you ask them about the Democrats in Congress versus the Republicans in Congress, they are more negative about the Republicans despite the fact that the Democrats are in control.
Wood says of all the Senate races this year, Virginia's is the most likely to switch from Republican to Democratic.
