Bush Support Drops in Poll
Americans Express Worry

Released MAY 5, 2004


(May 6) - 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 percent 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.

-----snip---

A Gallup survey in early April indicated 57 percent of Americans were dissatisfied with the way things were going in the country and 41 percent were satisfied. The job dissatisfaction numbers have been on the rise since early this year.

1. Same 35% who are satisfied will vote for Chimp no matter what.
He has hit rock-bottom. All he has left is his core constituency.

6. Isn't this closer to 40%? Given a divided (political)country.
