Congress Sucks

CONGRESS SUCKS….There’s plenty of stuff to chew over in the latest New York Times/CBS poll. War and terrorism continue to be by far the most critical issue with voters; George Bush’s approval rating is still low; Congress’s approval rating is practically subterranean; and Democrats are way ahead in the generic congressional ballot. You can read the whole thing here.

Just for fun, though, here are the two questions I feel like highlighting. We’re all familiar with the us/them syndrome in opinion polls (schools suck but my school is OK, Congress sucks but my congressman is OK, etc.), but today’s poll takes this to new heights. Apparently, 14% of voters approve of their own congressman’s job but nonetheless don’t think he or she deserves reelection. Now that’s a crowd in a nasty mood.
