At least America likes Congress less than the President. The country is at an historical level of pessimism. Which is fine, because we’re only in the middle of World War III.
Bleak Mood Drags Down
Support for Bush, Congress

An increasingly gloomy political environment has soured Americans on
President Bush and Congress, scrambled the Republicans’ 2008 field,
and strengthened Democratic front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton’s
lead, according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll.
As the Iraq war drags on and Washington is embroiled in inconclusive
policy debates, just 19% of Americans now say the nation is headed in
the right direction. More than three times that proportion, 68%, say
things in the U.S. are “off on the wrong track.” That’s approaching
the most pessimistic mood in the history of the WSJ/NBC poll.
