CBS Poll: 35% Bush Approval Rating


From CBS News, Bush's freefall continues:

Both Reagan and Clinton endured scandals during their second terms. In January 1998, when facing questions about his affair with Monica Lewinsky, President Clinton's job approval ratings actually rose, reaching the low 70s, and remained at least in the 60s throughout the rest of that year. President Reagan's job approval rating dropped by more than 20 points to 46 percent in November 1986, just after public disclosures about the Iran-Contra scandal. During 1987 Reagan's approval rating hovered around 50 percent, but began to rise again in 1988. President Richard Nixon's approval rating fell as the Watergate scandal became public in the first half of 1973, and was at about 25 percent during 1974.

President Bush's approval rating has been experiencing a slow but steady decline since 2004.
35% is astoundingly bad. Considering the Plame leak case is just starting, the showdown on Alito is yet to come, Iraq is sinking into quagmire status everyday and the Dems having found their spine, the freefall isn't over yet.

Check out the poll. Other telltale results show it could be the beginning of the end for the House of Bush.
