  •  This does NOT mean Republicans like the Democrats (1+ / 0-)

    in congress.  What it means is that Republicans approve of the way their Republican representatives are obstructing the Democrats.  And we democrats are unhappy with the success of the Republicans in obstructing the democrats in congress and blame them for not being more effective.  But we like to foget that we don't have a useful majority in the Senate and that in the house the democrats are not a united group, like the Republicasn tend to be, so we barley have an effective majority there either, though if people looked at all the good stuff the congress has passed that died in the senate, people might have a different opinion of the house.  Not that this forgives Hoyer or  or the blue dogs for what they are trying to do, which is ultimately to cover their own complicit asses in the who warrantless wiretapping scandal.

    •  That is typically a different question (0+ / 0-)

      The question was not asked in this poll, but typically there are two questions -

      Do you approve or disapprove of the job your Representative is doing?

      and

      Do you approve or disapprove of the job Congress is doing?

      A paradox of American politics has been that people generally rate their Representatives highly, compared to Congress as a whole. I assume the same holds here.
