“Among all Americans, 19% approve of the way Bush is handling his job as president…”
The poll conducted by Manchester, NH based, American Research Group shows that Bush’s approval ratings have dropped to a historic new low – 19%. It is even lower among Americans registered to vote.
According to the poll, a total of 78% of Americans say the national economy is getting worse and 47% say the national economy is in a recession. A total of 42% of Americans, however, say they believe the national economy will be better a year from now, which is the highest level for this question in the past year.
The president’s dabbling in the Middle East’s highly complex political scene has left him with absolutely no reputation to save. But there is a place he can try to save his last shreds of dignity: Africa.
The Mother Continent (I was born there) has seen her share of conquistadors and colonialists raping and pillaging the continent, so what is one more? Bush’s recent visit to Africa was what I see as a publicity stunt to try and save the little following he has had and to prevent his Presidency being crowned the worst in history.
I wonder what that 19% of Americans who approve of the Bush Administration policies even today are thinking? More importantly – how is McCain on his way to becoming the Republican nominee? Every Republican I know hates Bush and believes McCain policies are going to be the same and much worse.
