White Feather Democrats Drop 5 Points in Approval Ratings

The white feather democratic Congress dropped 5 points in one month. The poll shows that their 35% approval rating joins the president’s rating.
Since most every national poll is generally weighted heavy with democrats, this news may be even worse than reported:

WASHINGTON (AP) – People think the Democratic-led Congress is doing just as dreary a job as President Bush, following four months of bitter political standoffs that have seen little progress on Iraq and a host of domestic issues.

…The survey found only 35 percent approve of how Congress is handling its job, down 5 percentage points in a month. That gives lawmakers the same bleak approval rating as Bush, who has been mired at about that level since last fall, including his dip to a record low for the AP-Ipsos poll of 32 percent last January.

The internals to the poll have not yet been released.
