Washington (CNN)-- With the government shut down over a bitter partisan battle over the new health care law, the approval rating for Congress is plummeting to historic lows.

And a CNN/ORC International poll released on Monday indicates that it's not just Congress and its top leaders making history for all the wrong reasons. It's also the tea party and the Democratic and Republican parties.
According to the survey, just 10% of Americans say they approve of the job Congress is doing, an all-time low in a CNN poll. And 87% say they disapprove of the job federal lawmakers are doing, higher than it's ever been in CNN polling.

The 10% approval rating in the new CNN survey, which was conducted Friday through Sunday, is down 10 percentage points from CNN's previous survey at the beginning of the month. The 87% disapproval rating is a jump of nine points from the first week in September.
While Americans' perception of the job Congress is doing has taken a hit, President Barack Obama's approval rating -- well under 50%-- has remained steady since earlier in the month.

Time for the Democrats to rethink their current strategy.

The Republicans, buoyed by a resurgence in popularity of the Tea Party, are poised to take control of the U.S. Senate in addition to maintaining control of the U.S. House in the midterm elections of 2014.

Three pollsters came to the same conclusion in the last two weeks, including Gallup, which is hardly a hotbed of liberals.

All the polls, including the right wing Gallup, show that the tea party is at its lowest level of support yet among the public, whereas two ACTUAL polls now show that the Democrats have a great chance of taking the House in 2014.

Sounds just like the Republicans before the last election.

Except that this time even the Republican pollsters are saying that the Republican ratings are dropping like a rock.

Republicans are too dumb to listen to the sounds of their polls plummeting.

The desperation of Republicans watching their poll numbers go down every day the government is shutdown is amazing!

I rest my case - Republicans need to trot out the race card when they are losing.

I see all from below, and I'm come to acknowledge the sins of my past and am here to atone for them. Please do yourself a favor and vote Democratic. It's awfully warm down here where me and Smart Liberal are. You don't want to end up here.

Did you know Jesus is black? He is! I saw him on my way down to live with Lucifer.
