Bush Job Approval at 44%

via Atrios

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.


What I find depressing about this is that Bush is a lame duck. He's not going to be running for reelection. So it's not clear that there will be any repercussions for his low approval ratings. There are plenty of people out there (John Cole, Andrew Sullivan, to name two) who are deeply dissatisfied with Bush, but who still believe in conservativism and still believe that the Republicans are the standard-bearers for conservativism.

It's not enough for the public to wake up to the fact that Bush is horrible. They need to realize that Bush is bad because the Republican Party has gone bad.

Seen today on a woman's T-shirt at the gym (said woman wa hogging the area in front of the free weights I wanted to use): "What is the difference between a Communist and a Democrat?" (verso) "The Communist realizes that the Party is over." I refrained from dropping a medicine ball on this individual's foot.

Perhaps brother Jeb will be the one who will suffer the most from W's lack of popularity, as a theoretical VP candidate:
McCain May be Bush's Ticket
