Bush Breaks Record For Disapproval Rating in Gallup History

Disapproval of George Bush as set a new record. Bush now has “the highest disapproval rating of any president in the 70-year history of the Gallup Poll.” Currently Bush 28% approve and 69% disapprove of Bush. This exceeds Harry Truman’s disapproval rating of 67% in 1952. In other questions, 63% now agree that the Iraq war was a mistake. While Bush had record high approval following 9/11, his approval has been under 50% since May 2005. He has remained below 40% since September 2006.

The American Research Group has Bush’s approval even higher at 72% and approval at 22%, which is actually improved from his low point in that poll which occurred in February. At his low, Bush had a disapproval of 77% and an approval of only 19%.

    Next you’ll be quoting Newsweek or Time.

    Gallup is about as far leftwing a polling outfit as you can find in the US. They’re worthless, except for Dem political pundits appearing on CNN.

    Might as well quote polling numbers from Daily Kos or the Nation.

    Only you would consider Gallup to be “leftwing.”

    Even if you don’t accept Gallup’s results, note that other polling organizations place Bush’s approval even lower than Gallup does.

    It’s no surprise that Bush has such low ratings. The American people have grown tired of the policies of destruction and greed.
