Sucking Wind in California

From Holden:

These poll results out of California are nothing but good news for Francine Busby.

President George W. Bush’s 32 percent approval rating among Californians is the lowest for a sitting president in the state since Richard Nixon’s 24 percent in August 1974, according to a poll released today.

The Field Research Corp. poll said 62 percent of Californians disapprove of Bush’s performance and 64 percent said the country is going in the wrong direction; 26 percent said the country is on the right track.


The president’s handling of the Iraq war had 31 percent approval, the lowest yet, and 65 percent disapproval. On the economy, 57 percent of the state’s adults disapproved of the president while 36 percent approved.

Only 24 percent of those polled approved of the job the U.S. Congress is doing, with 66 percent disapproving.
