New Poll: Bush Approval at Record Low

How do Americans feel about President George W. Bush's performance in office? Unsurprisingly, the news is bad:

According to the new Newsweek Poll, the public’s approval of Bush has sunk to 28 percent, an all-time low for this president in our poll, and a point lower than Gallup recorded for his father at Bush Sr.’s nadir. The last president to be this unpopular was Jimmy Carter who also scored a 28 percent approval in 1979.

The upside of Bush's failed leadership is fairly obvious. As Newsweek continues:

This remarkably low rating seems to be casting a dark shadow over the GOP’s chances for victory in ’08.

Let's hope so. It's clear that Bush and his right-wing cohorts have squandered America's opportunities in the last seven years. The nation needs a change.
