    Your humorlessness and vitriol can sometimes be contradictory : )

    Lighten up. I poked fun at your personal ad. I think you're a little steamed about that whole thread about your abuse charges, or whatever they were. I didn't accuse you of any of that.

    The survey also found that, while voters do not give the President passing marks on his handling of the Iraq War, half (50%) believe the recently-passed Iraqi constitution is a major step in the right direction for the strife-torn nation that will lead to peace and democracy. Meanwhile, 37% believe Iraq is on the brink of a civil war.

    The Zogby America telephone poll of 1005 likely voters, conducted from October 19 through 21, 2005, has a margin of error of +/-3.2 percentage points.

    President Bush's overall job approval is up, and a 52% majority of voters hold a favorable opinion of him.


    As predicted...and regardless of what happens this week, he will continue to strengthen, much to the chagrin of many.

    Ha! Even a dead cat bounces. Your unwavering fealty to the traitors is truly shocking and awesome. :D

    Re: Bush Approval Ratings Headed Up

    Oh what a difference a week makes.

    Bush’s popularity hits new low
    Poll: Majority of Americans question president’s integrity
    By Richard Morin and Dan Balz
    The Washington Post
    Updated: 11:26 p.m. ET Nov. 3, 2005

    For the first time in his presidency a majority of Americans question the integrity of President Bush, and growing doubts about his leadership have left him with record negative ratings on the economy, Iraq and even the war on terrorism, a new Washington Post-ABC News poll shows.

    On almost every key measure of presidential character and performance, the survey found that Bush has never been less popular with the American people. Currently 39 percent approve of the job he is doing as president, while 60 percent disapprove of his performance in office -- the highest level of disapproval ever recorded for Bush in Post-ABC polls.

    Virtually the only possible bright spot for Bush in the survey was generally favorable, if not quite enthusiastic, early reaction to his latest Supreme Court nominee, Samuel A. Alito. Half of Americans say Alito should be confirmed by the Senate, and less than a third view him as too conservative, the poll found.

    Overall, the survey underscores how several pillars of Bush's presidency have begun to crumble under the combined weight of events and White House mistakes. Bush's approval ratings have been in decline for months, but on issues of personal trust, honesty and values, Bush has suffered some of his most notable declines. Moreover, Bush has always retained majority support on his handling of the U.S. campaign against terrorism -- until now, when 51 percent have registered disapproval.

    The CIA leak case has apparently contributed to a withering decline in how Americans view Bush personally. The survey found that 40 percent now view him as honest and trustworthy -- a 13 percentage point drop in the past 18 months. Nearly 6 in 10 -- 58 percent -- said they have doubts about Bush's honesty, the first time in his presidency that more than half the country has questioned his personal integrity.

    The indictment Friday of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Vice President Cheney's former chief of staff, in the CIA leak case added to the burden of an administration already reeling from a failed Supreme Court nomination, public dissatisfaction with the economy and continued bloodshed in Iraq. According to the survey, 52 percent say the charges against Libby signal the presence of deeper ethical wrongdoing in the administration. Half believe White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove, the president's top political hand, also did something wrong in the case -- about 6 in 10 say Rove should resign his position.

    Nation off course?
    Beyond the leak case, Americans give the administration low ratings on ethics, according to the survey, with 67 percent rating the administration negatively on handling ethical matters, while just 32 percent give the administration positive marks. Four in 10 -- 43 percent -- say the level of ethics and honesty in the federal government has fallen during Bush's presidency, while 17 percent say it has risen.

    Faced with its cascade of recent setbacks, the White House is hoping the latest court nomination can rally disaffected conservatives and score the president a victory akin to the one he enjoyed in the nomination of Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. Alito begins the confirmation process with the support of 49 percent of the public, while 29 percent say he should not be confirmed, the poll found. One in 5 Americans -- 22 percent -- did not yet know enough about him to make a judgment.

    The dissatisfaction with Bush flows in part out of broad concerns about the overall direction of the country. Nearly 7 in 10 -- 68 percent -- believe the country is seriously off course, while only 30 percent are optimistic, the lowest level in more than nine years. Only 3 in 10 express high levels of confidence in Bush, while half say they have little or no confidence in this administration.

    Just 35 percent of those surveyed rated the economy as either excellent or good, with 65 percent describing it as not so good or poor. Although the government reported last week that gross domestic product rose 3.8 percent in the last quarter, despite the effects of Hurricane Katrina, 29 percent of those surveyed said they regard the economy as poor, the highest recorded during Bush's presidency.

    Attitudes toward Bush are sharply polarized by party, as they have been throughout his presidency. Almost 8 in 10 -- 78 percent -- of Republicans support the president, while just 11 percent of Democrats rate him positively. Republicans long have been the key to Bush's overall strength, but Bush has suffered some defections since the beginning of the year, when 91 percent approved of the way he was handling his job.

    Among independents, Bush's approval has plummeted since the beginning of the year. In the latest poll, 33 percent of independents approved of his performance, while 66 disapproved. In January, independents were evenly divided, with 49 percent approving and an equal percentage disapproving.

    The intensity of Bush's support has changed since his reelection a year ago, with opponents deepening their hostility toward the administration. In the latest survey, 47 percent said they strongly disapprove of the way he was performing in office, compared with 35 percent who expressed strong disapproval in January. At the same time, the percentage who say they strongly approve of his performance has fallen from 33 percent last January to 20 percent today.

    Dissatisfaction with Iraq
    Iraq remains a significant drag on Bush's presidency, with dissatisfaction over the situation there continuing to grow and with suspicion rising over whether administration officials misled the country in the run-up to the invasion more than two years ago.

    Nearly two-thirds disapprove of the way Bush is handling the situation there, while barely a third approve, a new low. Six in 10 now believe the United States was wrong to invade Iraq, a seven-point increase in just over two months, with almost half the country saying they strongly believe it was wrong.

    About 3 in 4 -- 73 percent -- say there have been an unacceptable level of casualties in Iraq. More than half -- 52 percent -- say the war with Iraq has not contributed to the long-term security of the United States.

    The same percentage -- 52 percent -- say the United States should keep its military forces in Iraq until civil order is restored, and only about 1 in 5 -- 18 percent -- say the U.S. should withdraw its forces immediately. In the week after U.S. deaths in Iraq passed the 2,000 mark, a majority of those surveyed -- 55 percent -- said the U.S. is not making significant progress toward stabilizing the country.

    The war has taken a toll on the administration's credibility: A clear majority -- 55 percent -- now says the administration deliberately misled the country in making its case for war with Iraq -- a conflict that an even larger majority say is not worth the cost.

    The president's handling of terrorism was widely regarded among strategists as the key to his winning a second term last year. But questions about Bush's effectiveness on other fronts have also depreciated this asset. His 48 percent approval now compares with 61 percent approval on this issue at the time of his second inauguration, and from a 2004 high of 66 percent.

    Bush also set new lows in the latest Post-ABC News poll for his management of the economy, where disapproval topped 60 percent for the first time in his presidency. And 6 in 10 are critical of the way Bush is dealing with health care -- a double-digit increase since March. On gasoline prices, Bush's numbers have increased slightly over the past two months but still remain highly negative, with just 26 percent rating him positively.

    Widening gulf
    The survey suggests a rapidly widening gulf between Bush and the American people. Two in 3 say Bush does not understand the problems of people like them, a 10 percentage point increase since January.

    Nearly 6 in 10 -- 58 percent -- doubt Bush shares their values, while 40 percent say he does, another new low for this president. For the first time since he took office, fewer than half -- 47 percent -- said Bush is a strong leader, and Americans divided equally over whether Bush can be trusted in a crisis.

    Told of the poll results, Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman said Bush will rally support through such issues as education reform, changes to the tax code, and a new energy strategy to show the public that he "will continue to push for changes in our government to serve the American people."

    A total of 1,202 randomly selected adults were interviewed Oct 30-Nov. 2 for this survey. Margin of sampling error for the overall results is plus or minus three percentage points.

    Maybe we should. He did say "As predicted...and regardless of what happens this week, he will continue to strengthen, much to the chagrin of many." I wonder if he would like a little coffee with that crow? :D

    Here's another one showing how well Bush is doing.LOL


    Bush ratings drop to new lows in poll Thu Nov 3,11:46 PM ET



    For the first time in his presidency, a majority of Americans questioned President George W. Bush's personal integrity as his approval ratings on key issues fell to new lows in an ABC News/Washington Post poll published on Thursday.

    Fewer than half -- 40 percent -- said Bush was honest and trustworthy. Separately, 67 percent rated his handling of ethics in government negatively and fewer than half called him a strong leader, another first, according to the poll.

    Sixty percent of Americans disapproved of his overall job performance, which ABC said was "a level unseen since recession chased his father (George Bush) from office." That compared with a 39 percent approval rating, the poll said.

    Even in his own party, just under half of Republicans -- 49 percent -- now strongly approve of Bush's job performance, a 22-point drop from the start of the year when Republicans gave Bush a 71 percent job approval rating, ABC said.

    Bush has contended with a number of political setbacks in recent months, including growing concern about the Iraq war and rising casualties, soaring gasoline prices, the slow federal response to Hurricane Katrina, and the indictment of Vice President Dick Cheney's former aide, Lewis Libby, in the CIA leak investigation.

    Fifty-two percent of those polled said the CIA leak case indicated broader problems with ethics in the administration. Fifty-nine percent in the ABC News/Washington Post poll said Bush's top political adviser, Karl Rove, who remains under investigation, should resign.

    According to the poll, Bush also lost ground in support for his handling of the Iraq war and the economy.

    Fifty-five percent said the Bush administration intentionally misled the public in making its case for war, up 12 points from last spring, the poll found.

    On Iraq, 60 percent said the war was not worth fighting, up 7 points since August to another high, and 73 percent called the level of U.S. casualties "unacceptable."

    Bush scored a 61 percent disapproval rating for his handling of the economy. Sixty-five percent said the economy was in bad shape and 68 percent said the nation was on the "wrong track," the most since 1996, the poll found.

    The poll of 1,202 adults was conducted from Sunday to Wednesday and had an error margin of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

    Bush is so low, he has to look UP to tie his shoes.

    I don't understand how anyone can possibly still support this president now. And just as is the case on every other message board, those die-hard Bush fans take pride in calling everyone who doesn't agree with him a "liberal". It's nothing more than a "securtity blanket". I hate to say it but there are also those of us conservatives who happen to think GW Bush is one of the worst presidents ever.

    How does he keep getting away with so much????
