Low Approval Ratings

Reuters reported yesterday on the latest results from the Reuters/Zogby poll. The headline reads, "Voters unhappy with Bush and Congress."

Deepening unhappiness with President George W. Bush and the U.S. Congress soured the mood of Americans and sent Bush's approval rating to another record low this month, according to a Reuters/Zogby poll released on Wednesday.

Bush's job approval rating fell to 24 percent from last month's record low for a Zogby poll of 29 percent. A paltry 11 percent gave Congress a positive grade, tying last month's record low.
I believe the poll. More than twice as many people approve of President Bush as approve of Congress. The results also express my own views. I'm about 24% in favor of what the President is doing, and as for Congress, well 11% approval is pushing it.

What's interesting is the way other media outlets are reporting the poll results. Media outlets that like to pretend to have the ability to be objective.

The Baltimore Sun's political blog has this headline: "Bush's approval at new low in Reuters: 24 percent." The results for Congress aren't mentioned until paragraph four.

CBS News has this headline: "Poll: Bush Ratings At All-Time Low." Congress isn't mentioned at all.

USA Today has this headline: "Bush approval rating hits new low." Again, Congress isn't mentioned.

Even with polls so low, though, both the President and Congress seem to be on a collision course with rock-bottom. They're all still pursuing open borders, and Congress is still trying to give the victory to the Islamofascists. There's nowhere for them to go but further down.
