Salon/ War Room '04: Bush approval rating at its worst

The USA Today reports that "Americans are more dissatisfied with the nation's direction than at any time in more than eight years and President Bush's job approval rating has sunk into a tie for his worst-ever showing, according to a new Gallup Poll."

"The poll, released Thursday, indicates 62% of Americans are dissatisfied with the way things are going in the country. That is the highest dissatisfaction number since early January 1996 shortly after the federal government shut down briefly when Congress failed to reach a budget agreement. Thirty-six percent of those surveyed were satisfied with the way things are going in the U.S. A Gallup survey in early April indicated 57% of Americans were dissatisfied with the way things were going in the country and 41% were satisfied. The job dissatisfaction numbers have been on the rise since early this year."

"The survey comes as Bush deals with a growing controversy over reports of American abuse of Iraqi prisoners ... In the survey, 49% of Americans said they approved of the way Bush is handling his job as president and 48% said they disapproved. The approval number ties the lowest figure Bush has reached in his president, and the disapproval number ties the highest figure."

2. The Pravda Polls can go no lower
The truth is probably that Bush is below 40% now.

God, I pray our Voting Systems can still even halfway-decently count votes and resist tampering!
