How Low Can He Go?

Looks like Bush’s approval rating is continuing to drop. From G&M:

Thirty-two per cent of adults said they approve of the way Mr. Bush is handling his job as President, and 60 per cent said they disapprove. The President’s approval rating has been on a steady decline since the start of 2005 as dissatisfaction with the course of the war in Iraq has increased.

When asked whether Mr. Bush is honest and trustworthy, 55 per cent said that description doesn’t apply. Forty per cent said the description applied.

I wonder how low it will ultimately go?

  1. I have every confidence that it will keep sliding – but the real question is what can the LP do about throwing a monky wrench into the Democrats ascent into the House and Senate?

    I don’t understand why they’d want to do that. Personally, I’d much rather have the Democrats in control of Congress than the Republicans. The best choice would be for the LP to take over Congress but obviously that’s not going to happen.

  3. Leroy makes a good point. Personally, I’d would love to see the Democrats take at least the House or the Senate. That way the Republicans can’t fuck up the country at the pace the have been.

    At least they would be a road block to the GOP and vice versa. That is our best hope right now.

  4. Given the two main parties we have, gridlock is the best situation. It’s harder for the slimeballs to get away with so much.

    I believe a high percentage of the population have polled as distrusting both parties, yet getting a third major party rolling is very difficult.

    Would the masses support some sort of institutionalized gridlock, requiring the Congress and Administration to be in opposing hands? Is such a thing feasible?
