Public's faith in Bush wanes - poll08/04/2005 - 11:22:20
President George Bush’s standing with the US public is slumping just three months into his final term.
But Americans have an even lower regard for the job being done by the Republican-led Congress, according to an AP-Ipsos poll.
Bush’s job approval is at 44%, with 54% disapproving. Only 37% have a favourable opinion of the work being done by the Republican-controlled Congress, according to the survey of 1,001 adults taken between April 4 and 6.
Bush’s job approval was at 49% in January, while Congress was at 41%.
“This is a pretty sour spring,” said Karlyn Bowman, a public opinion analyst at the conservative-leaning American Enterprise Institute.
“People are not very impressed by what Bush is doing or by what Congress is doing – Democrats or Republicans.”
