The article speculates on the defeat of the Republican Party in midterm election in the U.S. Many experts think midterm elections are a referendum on the president. That is why Republicans are worried. There are clear warning signs. U.S. President George W. Bush's job rating is one of them. Another is the job rating that the public gives Congress: an average of 33 percent approval in six polls since the beginning of March. People think that the Republican-controlled Congress is not doing its job.
