I realize these are becoming kind of redundant. The only people supporting The Doofus now are the die-hards who are too stubborn to admit they made a mistake. However, I’m going to post this just for funsies…

Bush Dips Into the 20s

President Bush’s job-approval rating has fallen to its lowest mark of his presidency, according to a new Harris Interactive poll. Of 1,003 U.S. adults surveyed in a telephone poll, 29% think Mr. Bush is doing an “excellent or pretty good” job as president, down from 35% in April and significantly lower than 43% in January. Approval ratings for Congress overall also sank, and now stand at 18%.

Roughly one-quarter of U.S. adults say “things in the country are going in the right direction,” while 69% say “things have pretty seriously gotten off on the wrong track.” This has been the trend since January, when 33% said the nation was heading in the right direction. Iraq remains a key concern for the general public, as 28% of Americans said they consider Iraq to be one of the top two most important issues the government should address, up from 23% in April. The immigration debate also prompted 16% of Americans to consider it a top issue, down from 19% last month, but still sharply higher from 4% in March.

This comes from The Wall Street Journal, which, next to FOX News, is about as right-wing as you can get.

  1. Actually the drop is coming a lot from former supporters. Conservatives and even neocons are slowly realizing the truth about our misadventures in Iraq. More and more are getting antsy about the president’s apparent belief that he is above the law, and that he should have unlimited power to chip away at our right to privacy. Those who still have Bush/Cheney 04 stickers on their cars should consider taking them off. When I see those stickers I can barely resist torching their cars. The mess we’re in is all their fault!!!

  2. YES! I had not seen anything about this yet and I am extremely happy. That means people are starting to wise up and realize things have to start changing. Thanks for posting.
