Latest Bush low, Approval Rating 41 percent:
Poll: Bush Ratings Continue Slide


(CBS) The war in Iraq continues to tarnish the approval ratings of President Bush. Evaluations of the way Mr. Bush is handling the war in Iraq, how he is handling foreign policy, and how he is handling his job overall are now at their lowest levels ever in his presidency.

Mr. Bush's overall job approval rating has continued to decline. Forty-one percent approve of the job he is doing as president, while 52 percent disapprove the lowest overall job rating of his presidency. Two weeks ago, 44 percent approved. A year ago, two-thirds did.

Sixty-one percent of Americans now disapprove of the way Mr. Bush is handling the situation in Iraq, while just 34 percent approve.

4. Well
Cheney has been polling even lower, about 33 percent.

Cheney is actually polling as the most unliked VP in American History.

6. i wonder why?????
LOL....i figure when bush's approval goes below 40, that will be a true representation of his hardcore (wingnut) support.

3. I'm waiting for the day it dips just under 40
That will be a day to celebrate! I don't think it's that far off either.
