‘¦seems to be OVER. But I guess that’™s what happens when you sell out your country for personal gain.

Mr. 34%‘™s popularity is only eclipsed by his VP’™s 18% approval rating. I think Woodward needs to take some of the proceeds from his last book and buy a clue.

Other notable number’™s from the poll are:

Mr. Bush’™s overall job rating has fallen to 34 percent, down from 42 percent last month. Fifty-nine percent disapprove of the job the president is doing.

For the first time in this poll, most Americans say the president does not care much about people like themselves. Fifty-one percent now think he doesn’™t care, compared to 47 percent last fall.

Just 30 percent approve of how Mr. Bush is handling the Iraq war, another all-time low.

By two to one, the poll finds Americans think U.S. efforts to bring stability to Iraq are going badly ï–¿–½ the worst assessment yet of progress in Iraq.

Even on fighting terrorism, which has long been a strong suit for Mr. Bush, his ratings dropped lower than ever. Half of Americans say they disapprove of how he’™s handling the war on terror, while 43 percent approve.

On the upside, everyone’™s heard enough about Cheney’™s ‘œshooting accident’.

Ooooo, just went through the full poll, (pdf) and this jumped out at me:

And even aside from his low job performance rating, few Americans today ï–¿–½ just 29% – offer a positive view of George W. Bush. 53% have an unfavorable view of him, his highest unfavorable rating among all Americans since he took office.

CBS actually makes this latest poll seem better than it is, it’™s worth it to open up the pdf and see for yourself.
