George Bush’s approval ratings are continuing to drop. From UPI:
U.S. President George W. Bush`s job approval rating has fallen to 29 percent in a new Harris Interactive poll.
It is the lowest job approval rating of Bush`s presidency, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.
Of 1,003 U.S. adults surveyed by telephone, 29 percent said Bush was doing an ‘excellent or pretty good’ — down from 35 percent in the Harris Interactive poll conducted in April. Bush`s job approval rating had been 43 percent in the Harris Interactive poll conducted in January.
While the most recent Gallup survey shows Bush’s approval rating at 31 percent, it’s Bush’s lowest approval rating by that poll, too.:
More than two-thirds of the American public thinks the country is on the wrong track and voters prefer Democrats to Republicans by double-digits margins. Bush’s job approval rating has reached a low for his presidency of 31 percent.
Even Republicans are dropping their support for Bush:
Throughout Bush’s five-year presidency, conservatives have remained remarkably faithful. But the latest polls suggest that is no longer true.
A Gallup poll this week found just 52 percent of conservatives and 68 percent of Republicans approved of Bush’s performance, record lows for both.
The grounds for impeachment are clearly out there. With approval numbers this low, the political timing for the Libertarian Party to call for impeachment is right, if not past due. The LNC has the ability to pass a resolution calling for the impeachment of George Bush, but hasn’t done so. I’d recommend contacting your LNC representative and asking why the LP isn’t acting like a principled political organization.
