Bush Scraping Bottom in New Survey USA Poll

Hey everybody! Let's start the weekend off with the happy news that El Presidente, His Fraudulency I, is tanking in the new SUSA poll (which was taken before the Cheney hunting fiasco). He's down 40%-57% nationwide. In Illinois, I am proud to say, he's rejected 33%-64%. (Ha!) He has a negative rating in 40 out of 50 states; he's tied in one, and has a net positive approval in only 9. He's one of the most unpopular presidents in American history. And don't let anybody tell you differently.

If I recall correctly, his popularity was in the 90% range post September 11. Again, if I recall correctly, that's the second highest Gallup Poll approval rating since FDR. Approval ratings are meaningless. The public is notoriously fickle. In any event, only about 1,000 people are polled for any of these things. Polling is generally skewed too. To think that 90% of Americans approved of the president after 9/11 is as absurd as thinking 91% disapprove. And what do they disapprove of? Foreign policy? Domestic?

red russian, polling techniques have a pretty good statistical basis. I like to highlight Bush's unpopularity because for so long I had to listen to conservative commentators on TV talk about how "powerful" Bush was because of how "popular" he was. Well, by all measures, he's not popular any more. Bush's negative ratings have, in fact, been pretty consistently bad for about eight months or so.
