Republicans continue to lose ground.
A new AP-Ipsos poll shows Americans who want Democrats rather than Republicans controlling Congress is at the highest since President Bush took office, 51 percent to 34 percent.
It found 31 percent of conservatives want Republicans out of power.
It's six months until the mid-term elections.
Bush's own approval rating has fallen to the lowest level of his presidency: 33 percent.
A GOP pollster says the party needs "some events of significance to turn this around."
He says that includes concrete progress in Iraq, and action in Congress on immigration, lobbying reform, and tax cuts.
The poll found only one-fourth of the public approves of the job Congress is doing.
That's down five points since last month.
It also suggests Democrats are more motivated right now.
