    Bush Approval Rating Falls to 28%, Lowest Level So Far, in Harris Poll
    The Wall Street Journal Online

    President Bush's approval rating slipped to new lows in the most recent Harris Interactive survey, but he's not alone: For the first time since the series began, all of the political figures and institutions included in the survey have negative performance ratings.

    Of the 1,001 American adults polled online April 20-23, only 28% had a positive view of Mr. Bush's job performance, down from 32% in February and from a high of 88% in the aftermath of the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The current rating is his weakest showing since his inauguration.

    Well he was re-elected, his approval doesn't matter much anymore.

    The reason it's so low is a lot of Republicans, like me, give him the thumbs down for his big spending. Democrats aren't going to like him whatever he does.

    I guess 3500 American dead had nothing to do with that number.

    How many were dead in 2004 ? Not 3,500 but a good (or bad but you know what I mean) number.

    If I was president and had a 28% approval rating, I would be worried.. not only for myself and my legacy, but for my party as well.

    Churchill had low approval ratings in the 1930's, Chamberlin had great approval ratings.

    BF you hit the nail on the head.

    Of course, it ought to be pointed out that Chamberlain and the British right did not want war with Germany because they hoped Germany would attack the Soviets, who were regarded as a much bigger threat. When Stalin figured this out, he signed a treaty with Hitler, and destroyed Chamberlain's plan. Churchill came into power by forming a coalition government with Labor. Over time, the righties have turned against Chamberlain for his failed strategy. The same thing is happening to Bush. Even outright conservative Republicans are now openly critical of Bush for his Iraq strategy and his deficit spending.

    That election was about gay marriage and gun control and "Swift Boats"...don't you remember?

    Rove turned the red state voters from focussing on Iraq to worrying about the lesbians living in the trailer next door.

    So are you trying to say George W. Bush is the next Winston Churchill?

    No ratings are a measure of the emotion of the moment and don't necessarily pass the test of time and a leader will do what he thinks right rather than chase poll numbers.

    What we have now is a "Decider"

    What we need now is a "Leader"

    Actually, a leader is someone who has followers. The fact that Bush has failed to convince 70% of Americans that his path is the right one is an absolute failure of leadership.

    But George does not believe this, it is a left wing conspiracy.. the polls are biased to the left and the people spoke at the polls two years ago.

    I like this. The polls are biased and are a left-wing conspiracy. But back-to-back Presidential elections that were marked by voting irregularities, illegal ballots, computer errors, and outright disenfranchisement of voters (Remember the "felon lists"?) that all went in the Republican's favor...that's all okay.

    He convinced 52% of voters and won a majority of the electoral votes in the last election the only poll that counts.

    Since so many believe in running the country bsed on the latest polls. Apparently the rats should stop their obstruction and pass the Iraq soending bill without the pork and time limits on withdrawl.

    Yup...Rove did a masterfull job of redirecting the attention of swing voters to issues unrelated to Bush's miserable record.

    The clock however is ticking...and the bell will soon toll on this administration.

    Goodbye....and good riddance.
