A Gallup survey conducted for CNN and USA Today puts Bush's approval rating at 49% — close to his preelection numbers. That's 10 to 20 points lower than every elected sitting president at this stage since just after World War II, according to Gallup, which has been tabulating such data since Harry S. Truman won a full term in 1948.

Bush's Gallup rating echoed a survey published last week by ABC News and the Washington Post, which put his approval rating at 48%. That poll also found that 56% of Americans believed the Iraq war was not worth fighting. Time magazine also put Bush's overall approval at 49%.


Of course, these are all right wing media outlets, so I am sure the people with their heads in the sand left wing members of A.net will cry foul.

Aren't you a bright one? When you resort to name calling for those of opposing political beliefs, you not only make your argument weak, but yourself as well.

Bush's approval ratings at roughly 49% are no real surprise. Nothing much has happened since the election, and the numbers are roughly the same as they were at that time.

Quite a feat - he was only 2 years old in 1948.

Realising that he had already lost the support of one of his parents at that age, I feel a bit sorry for the guy.  Laugh out loud

Save the night college psychology crap for the YYZ is better than YUL posts.

My argument is the numbers themselves, they tell the story.

 Sleepy And Gallup said that Kerry was going to win the election. Sleepy

Their reputation cratered as bad as the Kerry campaign after coming in second to last (only Zogby was worse) in their election polling.

Clickhappy, I think your point didn't quite get through to me. At times, this english-language forum doesn't tell me whether a comment was tongue-in-cheek or not.

Night college psychology crap??? I hope you realize I haven't taken one psychology class in my life. It was just common sense, that's all.  Big grin

The numbers tell the story that nothing's changed since the recent election. The United States is currently a divided nation. Quite funny, Bush used to say "I'm a uniter not a divider." I guess he was wrong about that too!  Smile

LMAO Aloges.


Clickhappy, keep in mind that the election is in Janruary and likewise the war is going to get worse because of that fact.

I don't think it has anything to do with the fact that if your numbers are down at this point so soon after the election then you're a worse president. It's just the effect of the war.


His still is a pathetic president though.

Can we at least agree that Michel Leblanc is a putz?

Sure, Leblanc is a putz, but he's a shrewed business man who continues to pile up the cash!

Any yet the crawl at the bottom of the CNN screen tonight said that a poll showed Bush to be admired by four times as many people as said they admired Clinton - who came in second.

Why would be care about approval ratings at this point.... he's already secured reelection and (for better or worse) established his Legacy-- so of what concern would it be to him?

ConcordeBoy, it doesn't matter from a re-election perspective. However it does matter that people in his own party are being far more critical now that the campaigning is over.

He was quick to call it a 'mandate'. And he equates a mandate with a 'monopoly'. It was neither.

Even his own people are starting to circle the wagons a bit.

The approval rating is relevant because it shows he isn't the unifier he claimed he was.

He never called it a mandate...he said political capital and he was correct. You might remember Clinton was saddled with the "Mandate" moniker after the 96 election in which he did not secure anywhere near the votes or % points that GW did.

What exactly does this mean:
That's 10 to 20 points lower than every elected sitting president at this stage since just after World War II, according to Gallup, which has been tabulating such data since Harry S. Truman won a full term in 1948.

Does that apply ONLY to second term presidents?
