We've told you about dozens of polls over the past few months, what they say and what they might mean.

A poll of sorts was taken today at RFK Stadium, where Vice President Dick Cheney threw out the pitch at the Washington Nationals' home opener. (Scouts say he's got a shotgun for an arm). Anyway.

One new poll out today offers bad news for the GOP, but results that are in line with other recent surveys.

A Cook Political Report/RT Strategies poll shows President Bush's approval rating at 37%, down from 40% nearly two months ago. In addition, voters polled in this survey, by 46% to 36%, said they would rather see Congress controlled by the Democrats rather than the Republicnas.

One Republican bright spot to this poll, in the obligatory presidential preference question, those polled favor Arizona Sen. John McCain over New York Sen. Hillary Clinton 44% to 39%. However, the last time this poll was conducted, two months ago, McCain led Clinton by 10 points.
