According to a new Opinion Dynamics Poll, President Bush’s job approval has climbed to 38%, up from 33%. His disapproval is 53%, down from 57%.
36% approve of the performance of Congressional Democrats, while 49% disapprove. That is not too different from the 35% who approve of Congressional Republicans and the 53% who do not.
But most significantly, in the last poll, Democrats led 48%-34% on the generic Congressional ballot question. Today, they lead 41%-38%. In short, a 14 point gap has been cut to 3.
