America still prefers Democrats, 54-39.
B-b-but! Doesn’t Congress have a lower approval rating than Bush? Yes indeedy. People hate Congress because, like me, we expected a hell of a lot more when we elected them in ’06. Think about what it means that Congress has a higher approval among Republicans than Democrats. And why not? Frist and Hastert delivered less on unrestricted government spying than Reid and Pelosi.
Also notice that the percent of Americans who support Republicans roughly overlaps the number (41%) who believe think Saddam Hussein helped plan 9/11. If you still don’t think that FOX News plays an indispensable role in the GOP machine then, frankly, you’re nuts.
