Obama Down But Congress Down Further

The latest Allstate/National Journal Heartland Monitor Poll finds the bottom has fallen out for everyone in the nation's political leadership.

"Just 38% of those polled said they approved of Obama's job performance, with 55% disapproving. That's the lowest approval, and highest disapproval, the Heartland Monitor poll has recorded for Obama in the 19 times it has measured his standing since April 2009."

"Americans are even more dubious about Congress. Just 9% of those polled (down from 21% last November) approved of its performance. Fully 84% disapproved. Almost nine-in-10 of those who disapproved of Obama's performance also gave Congress a thumbs-down; 56% of those who disapproved of Congress also flunked Obama."
