AP Poll: Bush Numbers Match All-Time Low

George Bush poll numbers are in free-fall!

(AP) Public approval of the job President Bush is doing now matches its all-time low, an AP-Ipsos poll says.

The survey, released Thursday, reflects widespread discontent over how Mr. Bush is handling the war in Iraq, efforts against terrorism and domestic issues. It also underscores challenges Republican presidential and congressional candidates will confront next year when they face voters who seem to be clamoring for change.
[...]
On issue after issue, approval of Mr. Bush's efforts matched previous all-time lows in the survey.
[...]
In another indication of the public's bleak mood, only 21 percent said they believe things in the U.S. are heading in the right direction, the worst mark since the AP-Ipsos poll began in December 2003.

Women, older people, and those with low incomes were especially discontent. Only three in 10 conservatives and similar numbers of white evangelicals — usually strong GOP supporters — expressed satisfaction with the country's direction. CBS News

21% still support him? I have no idea how that's possible. Damn evangelicals.

Memo to Chimpy: "Golden Parachute" is an expression.

Actually, cancel that. I'd rather watch the splat.

Becca: Even the evangelicals are dumping him. The articles states:

"Only three in 10 conservatives and similar numbers of white evangelicals — usually strong GOP supporters — expressed satisfaction with the country's direction."

Yay!

Tengrain: I'm getting really tired of waiting for the other shoe to drop.

There's no bottom left now. One of my favorite comments on Bush's fanatical support of the illegal-alien amnesty bill, from blogger Mickey Kaus:

"Using advanced, high-tech tools, Karl Rove has found the last pocket of support for Bush and destroyed it with laser-like efficiency."

If he makes good on his threat to try and bring the thing back from the dead, he may be tcome the first president to achieve a 0% popularity rating.

With enemies like this, who needs friends?

He obviously does not care how low his numbers go! It is scary to think what he might do just because he will think that no one supports him anyway so why the hell not.

He may get a slight bounce when he makes impact.

Infidel753: Ha! What a great quote. The mad scientist at work!

Liberality: Yes, I know. I try not to think about that. :o(

Morse: Ha! Best joke this week! That's hilarious!
