How Low Can it Get?

The latest American Research Group poll shows the lowest approval
rating ever for President Bush, a 2-point decline in the past month.

can’t help but think
the statement about having the Justice Department ignore contempt
has alienated even more voters.


Finds Democrats Favored On War

Bush, Congress Both Get Low Ratings on Iraq

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

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.

    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%.
