Poll position
According to the latest polls:

Just 25 percent of Americans approve of the job Congress is doing, according to a new NYT/CBS News poll... (that includes 77 percent of all respondents, and 65 percent of Republicans, who said that "most members of Congress haven't done a good enough job to deserve reelection -- 39 percent, though, said they're happy with their own representative (48 percent said it's "time for someone new...") Still, because of redistricting, that doesn't mean the Democrats can take the House.

The poll also shows Bush with a 37 percent approval rating (raising questions about that USAT Gallup poll...) even after two solid weeks of Bushista speechifying on "the war on terra..."

From PollingReport, here's the spread:

In that same poll, 63 percent of Americans say the U.S. should follow international agreements on detainee treatment (32 percent say the U.S. should “do what it thinks right, regardless of what other nations think”). And "56 percent say torture is never justified, while 35 percent say sometimes it is." Hat tip to ThinkProgress.
