Bush's Disapproval Rating Worst of Any President in 70 Years: USA Today


www.usatoday.com

WASHINGTON — President Bush has set a record he'd presumably prefer to avoid: the highest disapproval rating of any president in the 70-year history of the Gallup Poll.

In a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll taken Friday through Sunday, 28% of Americans approve of the job Bush is doing; 69% disapprove. The approval rating matches the low point of his presidency, and the disapproval sets a new high for any president since Franklin Roosevelt.

The previous record of 67% was reached by Harry Truman in January 1952, when the United States was enmeshed in the Korean War.

Bush's rating has worsened amid "collapsing optimism about the economy," says Charles Franklin, a political scientist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison who studies presidential approval. Record gas prices and a wave of home foreclosures have fueled voter angst.

Unreal...And here Dummy just went on Deal or no deal and made wise-cracks about it all. It must be so nice to screw over the whole country and flip us all the bird with your arrogance and never worry about a thing, oh mighty decider...


Assessments of Bush's presidency are harsh. By 69%-27%, those polled say Bush's tenure in general has been a failure, not a success.


Harsh? This guy and his thug-cohort in crime Dick Insaney have DISMANTLED us in terms of the way the world views us, and they have helped GUT our infrastructure through their idiotic fiscal policies...


Low approval ratings make it more difficult for presidents to maneuver, limiting their ability to get legislation passed or boost candidates in congressional elections.

"The president understands war and the slowdown in the economy weigh down public opinion, but the situation in Iraq is improving, and the economy is about to get a big boost from the stimulus package," White House spokesman Scott Stanzel said.


Well there you have it! All of our problems have been solved thanks to the newest hot-air filled propeganda spewed out of the White House of lies! When we get our few hundred dollar stimulus checks, we'll be able to afford housing, food, gas, and maybe it will even solve the hundreds of thousands of jobs leaving on a regular basis!


Bush has had dismal ratings through most of his second term. His approval rating hasn't reached as high as 50% since May 2005. He has been steadily below 40% since September 2006.
