DECEMBER 18, 2013

     President Obama's numbers are down in a new Washington Post--ABC News poll, but hey, he shouldn't worry too much;  he has a lot of company.

     The poll shows the president and the Republicans tied at 41 percent.  A year ago Obama led, 54--38.  But if you really want to feel sorry for somebody--well, 535 somebodies--consider the Congress.  Congressional approval in the poll is 16%, up 4% from a month ago, but still near all-time lows, the poll says.

     More than 7 in 10 respondents disappove of how Congressional Republicans are doing their jobs, but more than 6 in 10 disapprove of how the Democrats are doing theirs.

     And there's an election next year and all those Congressmen--well, all those who want to--will have to run for reelection.  Happy 2014, guys!
