    Bush approval rating under 40% AGAIN.


    In the face of rising gas prices, partisan sniping over Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito, and a resumption of insurgent violence in Iraq, President Bush's job approval rating has slipped into a post-holiday funk, again dipping below 40%, a new telephone poll by Zogby International shows.

    His approval rating almost mirrors the percentage of respondents (40%) who said the nation overall is headed in the right direction. The deterioration in the President's numbers appears to be the result of eroding support among the investor class and others who supported him in his 2004 re-election bid, said Pollster John Zogby, President and CEO of Zogby International. And the problem is the Iraq war - just 34% of respondents said Mr. Bush was doing a good or excellent job managing the war, down from 38% approval in a Zogby poll taken in mid-October.

    Among investors, Bush's support for managing the war dropped five points since October, from 45% to 40%, Zogby data shows.


    But Zogby said the glaring split between how Republicans, Democrats and independents think the President is handling Iraq is remarkable.

    "The numbers in support for the war in Iraq are extremely low among Democrats and independents," Zogby said. "This is a partisan war." While 61% of Republicans said he was doing a good job managing the war (down from 70% in October), just 11% of Democrats and 28% of independents gave him good marks in that area. Among Democrats, 71% said Bush was doing a "poor" job with the war, while 17% said he was doing only a "fair" job.

    That was then. This is now. The fact is Bush has the lowest approval ratings of any reelected president. Besides Nixon. And that my friend is not where you want to be.

    Another totally irrelevant poll. The only poll that counts is when people go to the election booth. Bush won and that's not going to change despite all of the contrived polls meant to disparage him.

    Well this "contrived poll meant to disparage him" was picked up from a republican source. Didn't you notice I got this from NewsMax? They are a total right wing website. They don't see this as irrelevant.

    And this is what's wrong in discussion this war effort, in partisan jabs..it should be viewed in common sensical terms.. We look at it thought the campaignes of our political parties. How stupid is that?

    I think Bush does a fine job of disparaging himself he doesnt need polls for that.
