New Poll, Same Results As Bush's Approval Rating Continues To Teeter

I tried. I really did. Checked all the other blogs. Made a phone call or two. Looked at every newspaper's Web site I could think of. Checked out all of the candidates' Web sites. There's just not much happening today.

Having said that, there's a new poll out showing us pretty much the same thing we've been seeing for weeks now. President Bush's approval rating in the mid-30's. This time it's coming from Newsweek.The new Newsweek poll puts Bush's approval at 36%. The president continues to slide quickly when it comes to his handling of Iraq, as just 29% approve of his handling of the war, while 65% disapprove.

As far as Congress goes, 50% of voters overall say they want the Democrats to regain control of the House and Senate while 34% favor the Republicans. Among Independents, the Democrats are preferred by more than a two-to-one margin, 51% to 22%.
