How low can he go

Posted By on Tue, May 2, 2006 at 6:51 AM

A friend passes along the latest USA Today/Gallup poll, which has Bush with his lowest numbers ever, 34 percent approval. We admit the GOP response, in the context of coming congressional elections, carries plenty of weight.

A spokesman for the House Republicans' campaign committee, Carl Forti, said unhappiness with Bush doesn't doom the GOP's 29-seat House majority because "President Bush is not on the ballot."

Forti also noted that the poll showed 59% of respondents said their own representative deserves to be re-elected. However, poll data show that's the lowest percentage since 1994, when Republicans won control of Congress from the Democrats.
