    And that's just the spread! :eek:

    Look at the individual polls!:eek::eek:

    RealClearPolitics - Election Other - Congressional Job Approval

    CBS News -49
    AP -50
    NBC/WSJ -51
    Gallup -56

    That is BAD people! :eek:

    I could be wrong, but I don't think I've EVER seen such high disapproval numbers for Congress and that includes 1994 and 2006!

    People are pissed off! It is looking like this November is going to be one for the history books.

    Wow! :eek:

    The Democrats ignored the Tea Party, the protests, the townhalls, and the emails, phone calls and letters they received.

    Now they are going to have to reap what they have sown.

    It will be interesting to watch.

    You are not wrong, they are the worst numbers since they have been keeping track.

    If there is one thing that we have learned from the last two administrations, it's that government policies have by and large had a negative effect on this country. I hope the Republicans take over Congress in November, so that they can pass legislation, have Obama veto everything, not have enough votes to override, and get the gridlock this country desperately needs.

    Nate Silver will have his deadly accurate House predictions out soon, and it'll likely be more of the same. It's going to happen, and sticking our fingers in our ears like Republicans did in the months leading up to Election Day 2006 ("polls suck, and we will prove them wrong!!!") will turn out to be just as disastrous.
