Obama Advances as Congress Tanks

Aided by comparison to a very unpopular Congress, President Obama inched up to a 49% job approval rating in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll  -- "his best showing since spring, and one, if it holds, that may put his re-election prospects back within reach."

Key finding: Just 27% of Americans now approve of the Democrats in Congress, and just 20% approve of the Republicans -- both new lows going all the way back to 1994.

A new Gallup poll also shows Congress with a record-low approval rating at just 11%.
