They got rid of scandal-tainted Majority Leader Tom DeLay, airport shoe-tapper Larry Craig and prurient instant message typer Mark Foley, but they just can't seem to shake the gloom.
Congressional Republicans scored just 36 percent approval ratings from the American public in a CNN/Opinion Research poll released Friday.
Fifty-four percent of Americans viewed Republicans in Congress unfavorably, while 41 percent said they were rankled by Democrats. Democrats had a 53 percent approval rating to Republicans' 36.

I'm sorry but this poll really makes no sense.
You need to consider the source of this poll and why it was conducted.
The Repubs are the minority and currently have no power whatsoever so how can their numbers be at an all time low?
This is a fake poll obviously conducted to deflect the focus from Obama's approval rating, which continues to drop every day.
People have forgotten about Tom DeLay because they allowed him to wear those dancing shoes.
With everything that CNN has been trying to label "News" lately, this report should send up a red flag.

I find this astonishing. With Obama being labeled as the Antichrist so frequently, I would have thought that the GOP ratings would have risen being as how they have taken on the role of our savior from the socialist evil.

And, Fox news polls show that CNN has the worst cable news ratings in 25 years.
Which is more accurate?
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 42% would vote for their district’s Republican congressional candidate while 37% would opt for his or her Democratic opponent.
Beginning in late June, support for Republican candidates has ranged from 41% to 44%, while support for Democrats ranged from 36% to 40%. Looking back one year ago, support for the two parties was much different. Throughout the summer of 2008, support for Democratic congressional candidates ranged from 45% to 48%. Republican support ranged from 34% to 37%.

Quite honestly the only polls that matter are the ones that happen in November the first Tuesday of every even year. All the other ones are pretty much mean nothing.
Let's see the poll numbers next November....
