From Holden:

There’s a new Harris poll out. The skinny: Chimpy’s approval rating slides one point to a miserable 35%, while his disapproval rating flounders at 63%.

Thirty-five percent of 1,008 U.S. adults surveyed in the telephone poll think Mr. Bush is doing an “excellent or pretty good” job as president, down from 36% in March and significantly lower than 43% in January. This compares with 63% of Americans who said Mr. Bush is doing an “only fair or poor” job, down from 64% in March.

Furthermore, pessimism about the direction of U.S. policies appears to be growing. Only 27% of Americans believe “things in this country are going in the right direction,” a drop from 31% in March, according to the poll.
