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.

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