That's has nothing to do with each member of Congress individually, as you try to divert to, but as a whole. It appears America blames Congress for downgrade since they're JOB approval rating sank to 10%, Obama's fell to just 30%; and it's already up from that.

    The only poll that matters regarding Congress are the election polls and right now the Democrats still control the Senate and you can complain in 2012 when the GOP takes both houses and the WH. If Americans blame Congress for the downgrade why does Obama have a 39% approval rating?

    Considering Obama is the first president to preside over a downgrade in the US credit rating and doesn’t have the stones to admit he is partially responsible, choosing instead to blame Bush, the tea party, congress and anyone but himself, this doesn’t surprise me.
    I disapprove of Obama as well, he has been far too conservative, especially in foreign policy. Others that feel similarly account for much of that disapproval. Is there a candidate more liberal in the GOP line up? If not, we will have no choice but to once again vote for the least conservative candidate, Obama.

    It is why you see support of any of the GOP less than support for Obama.

    This was noted in the source you cited:

    "A poll Gallup released Friday on congressional approval showed that Democrats hold an edge over Republicans in the 2012 elections; 51 percent of registered voters favored Democrats, while 44 percent favored GOP lawmakers "if the elections for Congress were being held today." sun

It might result in more republicans being thrown out of congress but those dissatisfied voters aren’t going to benefit Obama.


    In other words, it is a false sense of security to claim that republican approval ratings are lower than Obama’s or the democrats.
    And Clintons were lower at this point of his presidency, and he won re-election. The republican candidates are too weak to win. Most of them are too extreme to win votes outside their teabagging base, and the other one (Romney) has too much baggage.

    I can remember in the 2010 elections, liberal media, democrats, and liberals saying the tea party was nothing to be concerned about, not to be taken seriously, and would have no effect on the upcoming election. What was the result of the 2010 elections again?

    Here's what I find even more interesting, less then a year ago, while stating that the tea party was nothing to be concerned about, now a year later, so very same liberals are blaming the very same tea party, that a year ago was inconsequential, for the deficit, for the lowering of our credit rating, hell if it rained yesterday, it was the tea party's fault. Even Obama and other top rated democrats, are standing in line to blame the tea party for everything. I find it almost laughable that a party that was so unimportant just a year ago, can suddenly be in the “cross hairs” of the liberal talking heads???

    So just keep under estimating the tea party, this movement continues to swell, and it will effect the 2012 elections just as much, if not more then they did in 2010.
    In 2010, the teabaggers were popular. Now that they've been given a chance in congress, they are the least popular faction in american politics. Their approval ratings are not only behind Obamas', they are lower than the republican party's ratings

    I agree. If Romney won the primaries then whats the point in any conservative, republican or anyone else voting for him, it would be no different than voting for Obama.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Re: Obama's Approval Rating Drops to Lowest Ever, According to Gallup

    I threw together a list of reasons why I think his poll numbers are dropping to such lows. Feel free to add to the list if you think I missed something (I know I missed a lot).

    Unemployment
    Deficit
    Debt
    Credit rating downgrade
    Increased government regulations
    Leads from behind
    Starts new wars
    Won’t end or win old wars
    Violates the War Powers Act and says he didn’t (like we are all so stupid we can’t see it)
    Hugo Chaves is his homeboy
    Doesn’t have a plan for anything
    Refuses to accept responsibility for anything
    Still blames Bush
    Blames tea party for debt and credit downgrade
    Only plan he has left is to attack and blame others
    No respect for the Constitution
    Won’t enforce the law
    No immigration reform
    No trade agreements
    No gay rights reform (the courts did it, not Obama)
    Health care bill will be overturned by SCOTUS
    No executive experience
    Appoints wing-nuts to his administration and has to fire them because they’re wing-nuts
    Media has never been more kind to a President but he doesn’t know how to use the media
    Probably couldn’t balance his own personal checkbook
    Puts world interests before US interests
    Gives great speeches (written by others) until teleprompters go down and then sounds clueless
    Is more of a great divider than great uniter
    Foreign policy would be even worse if Clinton wasn’t in charge because he’s clueless
    Puts his political career before the welfare of the US
    Is a crappy golf player
    His family goes on vacation (on our dime) every 3-4 months

    "Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought."
    John F. Kennedy
