Congressional Approval Hits All-Time Low

A Gallup poll yesterday showed the Democrat-led Congress' job-approval rating sank to 18 percent, the lowest rating since Gallup began tracking that public- opinion measurement in 1974.

The approval rating dropped nine percentage points since last month as 76 percent of Americans registered unhappiness with Congress' performance, President Bush's job-approval rating held steady at 32 percent in the poll of 1,019 adults conducted Monday through Thursday last week.

Congress' job-approval rating has careened downward since peaking at 35 percent in January, when Democrats took control of both chambers for the first time in a dozen years.
