rating ever for President Bush, a 2-point decline in the past month.

I
can’t help but think
the statement about having the Justice Department ignore href="http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/07/23/AR2007072300579.html">contempt
citations has alienated even more voters.

Bush, Congress Both Get Low Ratings on Iraq

Most
Americans see President Bush as intransigent on Iraq and prefer that
the Democratic-controlled Congress make decisions about a possible
withdrawal of U.S. forces, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News
poll…

A narrow majority — 55 percent — support legislation that would set a
deadline of next spring for the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq,
but while that measure is backed by 72 percent of Democrats and six in
10 independents, only a quarter of Republicans are on board.

    Aw, c’mon. We’re all scientists here. When the poll has a margin of error of 4%, attributing a drop of 2% to anything but random variation is mere wishful thinking.

    Ahcuah..

    True for one month. But when you consider that either party in the us could put up an I-speak-your-weight machine for president and still expect about a third of the vote, approval ratings less than this take serious effort.

    And if we take a linear extrapolation from April-July 07, then sometime around April next year, every single person in the US will disapprove of the job Bush is doing..

    Technically speaking, the lower limit would be 0%.
