Congressional Democrats are unpopular?

For several months now, conservative bloggers have delighted in misinterpreting poll results showing deep public dissatisfaction with the Democratic-led Congress.

The right-wingers would have us believe that the polls suggest a popular preference for the policies of the Bush admininistration and the Republican Party.

The truth, of course, is that much of the disapproval of Congress stems from the failure of Democrats to more strongly oppose Bush's war policy.

Lest anyone get the idea that there likely will be a return of Congress to Republican control next year, consider the latest Rasmussen poll showing Democrats with a lead of 18 percentage points over Republicans on a generic congressional ballot.
