Your leader's less popular than our leader

I hate to do this, but here's a link to a Raising Kaine article where they gloat about Bush's "low" approval rating:

The polls just keep looking worse for George W. Bush. Here's the latest from AP-Ipsos, indicating that only 14% of Americans "strongly approve" of the job Bush is doing as President. In contrast, 48% of Americans "strongly disapprove." Ouch, Mr. President!

The poll they link to shows a total 32% approval rating for Bush.

However, if they care so much about polls, I wonder how they feel about THIS poll about THEIR leader, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, from a respected pollster, Rasmussen?:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is now viewed favorably by 19% of American voters and unfavorably by 45%. Just 3% have a Very Favorable opinion while 22% hold a Very Unfavorable views.

Ouch. Wonder how Harry compares to someone really despised, like say, Scooter Libby?:

And, finally, there’s Scooter Libby, convicted to 30 months in prison during the week. He is now viewed favorably by just 19% of Americans,

So, Harry's as favorable as a convicted perjuror. And in what has to be a slap in the face to the Raising Kaine faithful, look who's got higher favorables than Reid:

Vice President Dick Cheney’s numbers held steady—38% favorable and 58% unfavorable.

It appears that the Democrats have somewhat succeeded in their attemp to turn contempt into an art form -- the american public now seems to hate everybody in Washington. There's a legacy that's right up the Democrat's ally, playing on the hate and fear of americans.
