Republicans Close Gap on Democrats in Congress Races, Poll Says

By James Rowley

Aug. 23 (Bloomberg) -- Republicans seeking to retain control of Congress have narrowed the Democrats' lead in voter preferences for candidates from nine to two percentage points in the latest USA Today/Gallup Poll.

The biggest jump in support for Republican congressional candidates may have resulted from a ``mini-surge'' in public approval for President George W. Bush's handling of terrorism after the U.K. foiled an alleged plot to blow up U.S. bound- airliners, the Gallup survey said.

When voters were asked which party's candidate they would support in the November election, 47 percent said the Democratic Party and 45 percent the Republican Party. The poll was conducted Aug. 18-20. Democrats held a nine-point lead in an Aug 7-10 Gallup survey.

The Democrats' lead averaged 10 points in three previous Gallup polls conducted since July 6. Democrats, who must pick up 15 seats to take control of the House of Representatives and six to take the Senate, led by 16 points in Gallup's June 23-25 survey.

The narrowing of the Democrats' margin in the latest poll isn't statistically significant because the margin of error is five percentage points, Gallup said. Bush's overall approval rating rose from 37 percent in the earlier August poll to 42 percent. The margin of error for that poll is three points.

Approval of Bush's anti-terrorism policies rose from 47 percent in the July 21-23 Gallup survey to 55 percent in the current poll.
Still, the survey found Democratic voters were more enthusiastic about supporting their congressional candidates than Republicans. The survey of 1,001 registered voters found that 46 percent of Democrats said they were enthusiastic about voting this year compared with 36 percent of Republicans.

funny how you decide to post poll numbers pertaining to anti terror policy only.  how about the other polls like foreign policy, immigration, overall approval rating, etc.?  and is a slight bump in any kind of approval rating or popular consensus supposed to mean that our administration is on the rise?  remember, this poll was taken over a freakin month ago which was stated in the article date Aug 23.

within that month, we've found out that our commander in chief has been trampling over our constitution and the geneva conventions, engaged in torture, held illegal secret jails in other countries to hold and torture these prisoners, has wrongly sent innocent persons to be tortured, and that the war in iraq has actually SPREAD terrorism rather than combat it.
