The way it’s headed, Congress’ approval ratings may drop soon below President Bush’s. A new Washington Post-ABC News poll showed that only 39 percent of Americans approve of the job Congress is doing. That’s down five points from April’s rating, and it’s only four points higher than Bush’s 35 percent approval rating. Democrats in Congress still rate higher than Republicans, but the overall approval drop is driven mostly by liberal Democrats who are mad that Congress hasn’t done more about Iraq. Their support of congressional Democrats dropped 18 points since April.
