Bush's popularity is taking a nose dive

Things are not looking good for the president and the republican controled congress. These are the worst poll numbers I've ever seen and with the rising oil prices and no end in sight to the war in Iraq, it doesn't seem like things are going to get any better for him any time soon.

The Republican president's job approval is at 44%, with 54% disapproving. Only 37% have a favorable opinion of the work being done by Congress, according to an AP-Ipsos poll.

Bush's job approval was at 49% in January, the same month in which he was sworn in for a second term, while Congress' was at 41%.

Where are the democrats? This is a perfect opportunity for them to step up to the plate and put for an agenda like the republicans did with Gingrich in the 90s.
