Are Democrats Suffering O. J. Envy?

Okay, we all know how unpopular George W. Bush is. We also know that the Democrats running Congress are even less highly thought of. But, who would have guessed that the Democrats are less popular that O.J. Simpson.

We have a president with a near record-low job performance rating – 24 percent. (The record lows were Harry Truman after he fired Douglas MacArthur, and Richard Nixon the day before he resigned. Both were at 23 percent. )

But the Democrats who run Congress have an 11 percent job approval rating. Let’s just note that in my polling in 1995, O.J. Simpson was at 16 percent.
