NY is a usually a Dem state on the big scale of things, but right now GWB is about a little lower than whale **** in this poll reported by the World Net Daily. http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=50286 New York voters who gave George Bush soaring 82 percent approval ratings in 2001 have turned their backs on the president, with only 22 percent now saying they approve of the way he's doing his job. The precipitous drop comes at a time when the president is seeking support in Congress for his immigration reform initiatives Ã¢â‚¬â€œ and during an election year when immigration will be a key issue in many congressional districts. The president's handling of the war met with the disapproval of 74 percent of respondents, with 67 percent saying going into Iraq was a mistake. Despite the overwhelming anti-war sentiment reflected in the poll, only 39 percent of voters were willing to call for a complete removal of U.S. troops from Iraq. Broken down by party, Bush could claim support from 50 percent of Republicans, 19 percent of independents and 8 percent of Democrats.
