9. Congressional approval ratings are meaningless. If you were unaware,
Edited on Thu Oct-18-07 11:32 AM by Rhythm and Blue
Congress is half Republican and half Democratic. Many people wish Congress would pass more liberal legislation. Many people think they're passing too much liberal legislation. Many people are sick of partisanship and think "to hell with all of them." That number doesn't help Republicans or Democrats.

If you want to see how we're actually doing, look at the "Who do you trust more on issue X" polls and the generic Dem vs Pub matchups.
