Bush Now Less Popular Than Jimmy Carter

President Bush is now clocking up the lowest approval ratings of his entire presidency. With only 26% of Americans approving of the job he is doing, Bush is now less popular than Jimmy Carter at the height of the Iran hostage crisis.

But the dissatisfaction Americans are feeling towards their politicians is even worse when it comes to the US Congress.

According to a new Gallup poll, a shockingly low 14% of Americans think the Congress is doing the job they were elected to do. Considering that getting American troops out of Iraq was one of, if not, the key election issues last year, and knowing that American troops will remain in Iraq for years to come, it probably comes as little surprise to see so many Americans showing such vast disapproval of their lawmakers.
