Here’s a little nugget for you.

“Among all Americans, 19% approve of the way Bush is handling his job as president and 77% disapprove. When it comes to Bush's handling of the economy, 14% approve and 79% disapprove.
Among Americans registered to vote, 18% approve of the way Bush is handling his job as president and 78% disapprove.”

Bush now owns the title as officially the worst president in history. Think he’s bottomed out yet?

You can compare his approval ratings with other presidents here.

He's still got a long way to fall, though the Dems will still do what he says until 1/20/09.

i agree w/ fixer - the Dem's in the congress seem to be his more loyal supporters.

I suppose that is why he is in Africa and attempting to look like he is doing some good. Talk about too little too late.

I can't believe his ratings are that high.

Must be more rich people in America than we know.

He's still got enough time to reach single digit approval ratings. I'm thinking he can.

Where can they find so many blind mouthbreathers in one place that still think the putz is doing a heckuva job?

Yep, I think single digits are well within the realm of possibility especially as the economy seems to be tanking.

No surprise. He has done more damage to the reputation, status, security, and economy than any enemy could ever hope for.

The disaster of his presidency is the worst thing to happen to the U.S. in my lifetime.

... and yet, I think that he truly believes that his ideology is somehow patriotic and ethical. His intelligence is very limited, and his diplomacy is catastrophic.

His intentional lies that led us to our current Iraqi occupation is criminal, there is no other way to see it.

Yet, we are going to spend records amount of tax money protecting him after he leaves office.

WHere is the outrage!

Heh heh. The pollsters must've taken that poll in Texassss, where I actually still see cars with Bush '04, and people in Highland Park are delirious with the hopes that he will become their next door neighbors when he and Laura move here next year.

Maybe if the pollsters take the poll in other states, his approval will drop to the single digits.

I'm really hoping for single digits. Of course, that schadenfreude will probably come with a hefty price we can ill afford so maybe I should be happy with 19%.

in the "give the devil his due" department, bush's africa policy has been one small area where he's actually had some real accomplishments. and it hasn't been done by meddling in the affairs of soveriegn states, it was done by simple steps such as establishing the means to get mosquito nets to people. his "absintence only" stance was dropped for the most part when faced with the AIDS/HIV situation still ravaging africa. U.S. aid is one of the biggest suppliers and distributors of condoms and medical care.

still, the fact that one in five americans think that he's done even an adequate job is chilling to say the least.

I am still wondering how Bush won re-election. I think that scared me more than anything else.

You know, his stats really are bad. I mean B.A. f'ing D. BAD.
But, I really have to wonder about that percentile that thinks he's doing a good job. Think about it. What the HELL is wrong with those people?

I wrote on this too! You know what bothers me? MSM never even mentioned it. The worms are complicit. And the chief idiot is proud of what he has done. He could care less what anyone says or thinks. AAARRRGGGHHH!

There's still plenty of time to get those numbers down. I bet internationally they're even lower.

Pendulum's going to swing! Swing it far my American cousins...

Let him go lower. Pleeez! We can only hope at this point...

He probably never sees those figures, but it's nice to know those figures are there! His handlers likely don't want him to know about those low ratings, because it might make him so mad he would do something really rash, or stupid.

Hey, wait a minute... Hasn't nearly everything this guy has done in his presidency been rash or stupid?

I think the upcoming primaries and the November election could be a referendum of sorts on how stupid the American people really are as a whole. Voting for and electing Republicans after eight years of Bush/Cheney simply should not make sense, even to Republican voters.

As far as how Bush would be rated in other countries, my guess is that much of the rest of the world might feel like our country is holding them all hostage, or keeping them under a cloud of fear. Mrs. Snave and I might take a Europe trip this summer, and I'm thinking it might be a good idea to wear a maple leaf pin so that citizens of Italy and Croatia might think I'm not American, but Canadian. I'm proud of my country, but I resent the idea that I might be hated or not treated well if people find out I'm an American, because of their hatred/fear of Bush/Cheney. I shouldn't have to wear a maple leaf pin... I think it would work just as well or maybe even better to wear an Obama button.

I can't WAIT to see Bush/Cheney out of office. Let's hope they allow our political process to replace them.

Ah, but Bush said yesterday we're going to keep his party in the White House and give them back congress.

Then he flapped his wings and flew to Camp David.

it's pretty scary when you consider that, of those who approve of his record, all but 1% are registered voters.

we all know how THEY'LL vote, come November.
