The United States Congress has again received a whopping 11% approval rating from participants in the most recent Zogby poll–the same score as last month. At the same time, George W. Bush received a 24% approval rating. Zogby participants expressed concern about American economic and foreign policy, and only 26% said that the country is headed in the right direction. At the same time, 45% described their personal financial situations as good.

Among Democratic candidates for president, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s Zogby approval rating jumped 11 points, from 35% to 46%, while Sen. Barack Obama’s numbers moved from 21% to 25%. Among Republicans, Rudy Giulliani took a 28% lead, while Sen. John McCain’s numbers fell from 13% to 8%. 51% of participants said that former vice president Al Gore should not enter the presidential race.
