The Friday Daily Kos Poll Shows Significant Gains for Congressional Democrats

The Friday Kos poll is in: 

The big winner this week are congressional Democrats, who saw a whopping 13-point net gain in their favorability ratings. That gain came mostly among Democratic respondents, who went from 68-31 favorable/unfavorable to 71-18, and Independents, who went from 38-55 to 47-44.

In the first weekly poll conducted January 5-9, Congressional Democratic favorability rating was 36-53, meaning that passing Obama's stimulus package and other assorted legislation have earned it an increase of 18 points net favorability this year. Congressional Republicans, on the other hand, started the year at 24-64, meaning they've lost 11 net favorability points through this week.
