What Dudya's Polls Are Saying
The Houston Chronicle reported on the poll that was conducted by CBS News which found that President Bush's job-approval rating is now at 34%.
A toxic mix of messes has dragged Bush down, including his handling of Hurricane Katrina, the Harriet Miers Supreme Court nomination, violence in Iraq, and the port deal with a state-owned Arab company.Hecka of a job, Dudya!
Bush's approval rating is far below those of three of the last four two-term presidents in February of their sixth year:
Only Nixon, at 27.5 percent in February 1974 — six months before he resigned — was less popular than Bush is now.
- Dwight Eisenhower (64 percent);
- Ronald Reagan (63.50 percent); and
- Bill Clinton (57 percent).
