Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

Beware Falling Poll Numbers

This morning's polling news: FOX news conducted a poll of registered voters, and found that only 39% approved of the president, 54% disapproved, remainder undecided. That's very low, given that it is Fox. It also corroborates many other recent polls showing the president's approval ratings at 40% or below. When all the big outfits are giving the same numbers, it's something to pay attention to.

Fox News, of course, will use its low number so that it can claim, when the president's popularity ticks back up to an abysmal 42% or so that the president's popularity is increasing. Then will cite to tax cuts and his 'strong stand on terror' as the supposed reason. But even they cannot conceal that the GWBush is very unpopular now, and heading south.

This year, there was no 9/11 boost for the president's popularity. Katrina.

Actually, Bush's aproval ratings have been dropping quite steadily since January 2002. (see link to the right) has the trend posted from time to time. It's quite stark. 40% seems to be about the floor for Bush support.

CBS News has Bush as 32% approval. But CBS consistently has the worst numbers for Bush. Still, it's unlikely that they are 15 points off. 8 points perhaps but not 15 let alone 20!
