After listening to Seymour Hersh talk about Bush’s agenda for Iran on the news, it got me a bit down this afternoon.. The only thing that could boost my morale at that point was to find out Bush’s latest poll numbers. Here is a brief excerpt:
Political reversals at home and continued bad news from Iraq have dragged President Bush’s standing with the public to a new low, at the same time that Republican fortunes on Capitol Hill also are deteriorating, according to the latest Washington Post-ABC News poll.
The survey found that 38 percent of the public approve of the job Bush is doing, down three percentage points in the past month and his worst showing in Post-ABC polling since he became president. Sixty percent disapprove of his performance.
With less than seven months remaining before the midterm elections, Bush’s political troubles already appear to be casting a long shadow over them. Barely a third of registered voters, 35 percent, approve of the way the Republican-held Congress is doing its job — the lowest level of support in nine years.
