Foxes leaving the White House?

News & Politics

Noting that Bush's approval rate is at a humorous 33% -- quite a bit less than the number of Americans who reject evolution -- Tim Grieve spots an interesting trend in the poll: "Among Republicans, only 66 percent still give Bush a thumb's up -- an 18-point drop from a year ago."


Overall, 57 percent of Americans disapprove of the job Bush is doing, and the most frequently mentioned reason is Iraq (48 percent). The other top reasons include generally "doing a bad job" (24 percent), disagreement on issues (22 percent) and the economy/jobs (17 percent).
NOTE TO PROGRESSIVE STRATEGISTS: Bush hatred is just therapy.
Eleven percent of Americans say they disapprove because they "don’t like him" and 10 percent because he "doesn’t care about average people."
