Breathing Down Tricky Dick’s Neck

There’s a new Gallup Poll out.

According to a new Gallup Poll, conducted June 11-14, 2007, just 32% of Americans say they approve of the way George W. Bush is handling his job as president, while 65% disapprove. Bush’s current job approval rating is among the most negative of his entire presidency and is just one point higher than his all-time low as president, measured in May 2006.His current 65% disapproval rating ties for the highest of his entire tenure in the White House, the same as measured in May 2006 and in February 2007.

The president’s 32% approval rating is little changed since the beginning of May, but has been tracking slightly lower than his 35% average for the first six months of the year. Bush’s highest rating this year was 38% in early April, his lowest is the 32% recorded in both June polls conducted so far this month.

The president has not had an approval rating above 40% since last September, shortly after the five-year anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.Only Harry Truman (from October 1950 to December 1952) and Richard Nixon (from July 1973 to August 1974) had approval ratings under 40% for longer periods of time.

He’ll catch Nixon in October. Truman will be harder to pass.

  1. The 32% that still do support BushCo should be committed. At least the onese that aren’t arms dealers or CEOs.

  2. Of course he will compare him self to Truman “He had lousy ratings and now everyone sees he did the right things and was a great president!”
