Bush approval rating at 2% among African-Americans
October 13, 2005
Judd at Think Progress reports that Bush's approval numbers have hit a new milestone, or millstone, as the case may be:
A new NBC/Wall Street Journal Poll found that just 2 percent of African-Americans approve of his leadership. NBCÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Tim Russert Ã¢â‚¬â€ who called the number Ã¢â‚¬Å“a dramatic setbackÃ¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬â€ looked into it, and he could not Ã¢â‚¬Å“find a pollster who can remember any President ever getting just 2 percent approval from African-Americans.Ã¢â‚¬ÂDespite this staggering setback, the President cites exclusive polling data that puts his approval rating amongst omnipotent, omniscient, omnibeneficent beings at a steady 100%.
