Bush's Job Approval Rating at All Time Low
Only 36% of the public approves of Bush’s performance, according to an Ap-Ipsos poll released Friday. The GOP-led Congress fared even worse, with an approval rating of only 30%. Nixon’s numbers were in the high 20s during the Watergate scandal. What’s the magic number for regime change?

Democratic leaders predicted they will seize control of one or both chambers of Congress in November. Republicans said they feared the worst unless the political landscape quickly changes.
