Bush's disapproval rating worst of any president in 70 years

Source: USA Today

WASHINGTON — President Bush has set a record he'd presumably prefer to avoid: the highest disapproval rating of any president in the 70-year history of the Gallup Poll.

In a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll taken Friday through Sunday, 28% of Americans approve of the job Bush is doing; 69% disapprove. The approval rating matches the low point of his presidency, and the disapproval sets a new high for any president since Franklin Roosevelt.

The previous record of 67% was reached by Harry Truman in January 1952, when the United States was enmeshed in the Korean War.

... Views of Bush divide sharply along party lines. Among Republicans, 66% approve and 32% disapprove. Disapproval is nearly universal — 91% — among Democrats. Of independents, 23% approve, 72% disapprove of the job he's doing.

"Worst President Ever"

But it's really a tragedy especially for those of us who expected this all along. Also, the real damage will still take some more time to develop. Lower life expectancies and such.

Re: Bush's disapproval rating worst of any president in 70 years

I told all you (52%) americans you made a huge mistake in 2004.

2000 was forgivable as the election was stolen. But there is no excuse for 2004. Shame on 52% of americans for inflicting this buffoon on the rest of the world.

I wonder how his 8 years of "reign" will be judged in 10 or 20 years.

9% of Democrats approve of him. I'd like to meet such a creature. Then again, they could be posting on this board. LOL!!!!!

Re: Bush's disapproval rating worst of any president in 70 years

Not sure if I trust this poll considering we freaking voted him back into office with similar polls in 2004.

Intersting you should say that. Voting machines without a paper trail of any kind were questioned again, again. Oddly, those same voting machines were controlled by a rightwing political company.

Re: Bush's disapproval rating worst of any president in 70 years

Of course he wouldn't approve it

That said, people seem to have short memories anywhere you go. Why the hell was he voted in again in 2004 in the first place. Now the people who complain about his politics can only blame themselves, they should think before they cast their votes next time.
I'm not talking about people in this thread, just in general. You take the responsibility for the people you vote in.

Given all the technology progress, those machines can indeed be manipulated pretty much in anyway we want. But that would be going too paranoied

I totally agree. There's something funny about how American politics works, though. I don't know if people were actually voting for Bush as much as they were voting against the people who were supporting Kerry.

It may very well happen in this Democratic primary this season.

I'm afraid it might

I have yet to find anyone who'll admit they voted for Bush in 2004.
