Bush @ 44%
These are just polls, but we need to have a leader who’s representative of the people.
Gallup has more:
PRINCETON, NJ — A new Gallup Poll finds a decline in George W. Bush’s job approval rating. After standing at 49% approval in the prior two CNN/USA Today/Gallup polls conducted this month, now just 44% of Americans say they approve of Bush, a new low mark for the president. The poll also shows a drop in Bush’s favorable rating to 48%, which is the first time it has dropped below 50% since Gallup began tracking this opinion in 1999. Four in 10 Americans are satisfied with the way things are going in the country, which is essentially unchanged from early July. The poll shows continued positive momentum for the Democratic Party in terms of national party identification and ratings of the two major political parties, both of which were evident before the drop in Bush approval occurred.
It’s never good when our President falls below the majority of approval during wartime.
I, for one, hope he recovers with a more moderate agenda so more Americans support his leadership. During this time it’s essential.
