A new Gallup survey conducted for CNN and USA Today puts Bush's approval rating at 49 percent -- close to his pre-election numbers. That's 10 to 20 percentage points lower than every elected sitting president at this stage since World War II, according to Gallup, which has been tabulating such data since Harry Truman won a full term in 1948.
Bush's Gallup rating echoed a survey published last week by ABC News and The Washington Post, which put his approval rating at 48 percent. That poll also found that 56 percent of Americans said the Iraq war was not worth fighting. Time magazine put Bush's overall approval at 49 percent.

With approval #'s like that it is doubtful that Bush will be elected again. Oh, wait he can't run again, so the point is mute.
But please keep up the Bush bashing! It is so fun to hear the whines of the left! Don't come up with any new ideas, just keep bashing, and make sure Hillary gets the democratic nomination! Please God, let Hillary run!
huh? They're approval polls- the lowest of any president in history- stop making excuses for the incompetent.

Some people need to bear in mind that Bush could poll only 10% and it wouldnt matter because more people voted for Bush on election day then kerry. Bush has droped in the polls because he is no longer looking for peoples votes.
What has changed is the short attention spans of the average american with the overall education level of an 8th grader. (no lie...local/network news is geared to this level because its one of the largest demographics)
just what exactly has changed from the election 'till now to make his support so tepid.
