Voters Don't Want Congress Which Supports Bush Positions

There’s far too many polls showing Bush’s approval rating falling to even be news worthy enough to post them all any more. The latest CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll has Bush’s approval at 37%, which is in the middle of the current batch of polls which range between 35% and 39%. Only 28% of independents approve of Bush’s performance.

While other polls are also showing this, the current poll is notable for showing that, “For the first time, more than half of the public thinks Bush is not honest and trustworthy — 52 percent to 46 percent.”

The most interesting finding is that people do not want to vote for candidates for Congress who are like Bush:

Only 9 percent said their first choice in next year’s elections would be a Republican who supports Bush on almost every major issue.

Forty-six percent said the country would be better off if Congress were controlled by Democrats, while 34 percent backed a GOP majority.
