Bush's job rating continues to drop
President Bush's job approval rating continues to plummet, with 39 percent of Americans surveyed in the latest CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll supporting his performance, compared to 58 percent expressing disapproval.
The approval rating was lowest the poll has recorded during Bush's presidency, down from 45 percent in a survey taken September 26-28, and the disapproval rating was up from 50 percent.
Now notice "continues to drop" this implies the last time his approval was polled it was also "dropping" but it wasn't --- the last poll had Bush up in approval since last polled. later on in the article that's somewhat pointed out --- all be it not directly.
The rating in the September 26-28 poll was an uptick that reflected the public's generally favorable view of the way Bush handled Hurricane Rita.
But honestly, who cares about the poll this week, or next week --- its the long term picture that should be kept in mind, and the American public changes it mind quickly, and often reacts in a silly way. I doubt the administration cares all that much however, nor should they --- Clinton's numbers weren't all that high either if you remember.
Of course, his less then amazing Supreme Court pick isn't helping.
