Good News/Bad News on Congressional Approval Ratings


For those libertarians, like myself, who think general public disdain for government is a good thing, bittersweet news from USA Today: Public approval of Congress is at the highest point in a year. The good news is: it's still at only 40 percent. And:

The survey shows Bush's approval ratings remain in the mid-30 percent range, that a striking 39% strongly disapproves his handling of foreign policy and the war on terror, and that the public has scant hopes that the president and Congress can work together to solve the country's problems.

As Roland Burton Hedley Jr. often said, that "remains to be seen."
