BUSH: Thirty-two percent approved of President Bush's performance in this month's Associated Press-Ipsos poll, about the same as last month's all-time low for him in the survey of 31%. His 32% approval for handling the economy was his lowest rating ever for that category in the AP poll. Forty percent approved of his job on foreign policy and terrorism, and roughly a third gave him positive marks for Iraq and domestic issues, with his ratings in all three showing slight improvement.

CONGRESS: Twenty-five percent approved of the way Congress is handling its job, a slight increase from the 22% who approved last month, a record low in the four-year-old AP-Ipsos poll.

METHODOLOGY: The poll involved telephone interviews with 1,001 adults from November 5-7 and had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
