    Bush becomes worst US President says poll

    US President George W. Bush has earned the highest disapproval rating
    for a President in the nation's history, according to a new poll released
    today.

    The CNN/Opinion Research poll sows that more than seven in every ten
    Americans say they are disappointed in Mr Bush's performance, and say
    they disapprove of the way he is handling his job.

    The poll shows that 71% of the over 1000 respondents believed that
    Mr Bush was doing a poor job at being the US President.

    The poll, if correct, shows that Mr Bush is even less popular than former
    US President Richard Nixon, who was forced to resign from office following
    the Watergate affair.

    The poll also asked about American's approval for the war, with 68% of
    respondents saying they did not support actions in Iraq.

    The poll was delivered nearly five years to the day since the President
    delivered his "mission accomplished" speech aboard a US aircraft carrier.

    The mission is now far from accomplished, with some commentators also
    questioning whether the Middle Eastern nation has actually gone backwards.

    It is now likely the United States will withdraw from the Iraq war, with both
    Democratic candidates pushing for a short, sharp withdrawal timetable.

    Democrats are favoured to win this year's Presidential elections, with both
    former first lady turned New York Senator Hillary Clinton and Junior Illinois
    Senator Barack Obama endorsing a "sensible" withdrawal.

    Republican nominee-in-waiting John McCain meanwhile says he supports
    the current "troop surge" strategy, with the war likely to continue should
    he win in November.

    Poll: More disapprove of Bush than any other president

    WASHINGTON DC (CNN) -- A new poll suggests that President Bush is
    the most unpopular president in modern American history.

    A CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey released Thursday indicates that
    71 percent of the American public disapprove of how Bush is handling
    his job as president.

    "No president has ever had a higher disapproval rating in any CNN or
    Gallup Poll; in fact, this is the first time that any president's disapproval
    rating has cracked the 70 percent mark," said Keating Holland, CNN's
    polling director.

    "Bush's approval rating, which stands at 28 percent in our new poll,
    remains better than the all-time lows set by Harry Truman and Richard
    Nixon [22 percent and 24 percent, respectively], but even those two
    presidents never got a disapproval rating in the 70s," Holland said.
    "The previous all-time record in CNN or Gallup polling was set by Truman,
    67 percent disapproval in January 1952."

    While Gallup polling goes back to the 1930s, it wasn't until the Truman
    years that they began surveying monthly approval ratings.

    CNN Senior Political Analyst Bill Schneider adds, "He is more unpopular
    than Richard Nixon was just before he resigned from the presidency in
    August 1974."

    President Nixon's disapproval rating in August 1974 stood at 66 percent.

    The poll also indicates that support for the war in Iraq has never been
    lower. Thirty percent of those questioned favored the war, while 68
    percent opposed it.

    "Americans are growing more pessimistic about the war," Holland said.
    "In January, nearly half believed that things were going well for the U.S.
    in Iraq; now that figure has dropped to 39 percent."

    The numbers on the Iraq war come on the five-year anniversary of
    Bush's "Mission Accomplished" moment on board the aircraft carrier USS
    Abraham Lincoln, when he proclaimed that "major combat operations in
    Iraq have ended."

    The record-low support for the war in a CNN poll could be one reason
    behind the president's unpopularity, but it probably is not the only one.

    "Support for the war, the assessment of the economy and approval of
    Mr. Bush are all about the same -- bad," Schneider said.

    The CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll was conducted by telephone
    from Monday through Wednesday among 1,008 adult Americans.

    The poll's sampling error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.

    According to the NYT, June 25, 2003, in late 1970's, the top 1% of US population held 13% of the wealth by 1998, the top 1% owned 38% and the top 5% owned 60% of the wealth. That same article said that the top 20% owns more than the rest of population combined.....which leaves 8% of his supporters who must just be incredibly stupid.........and note that this article was printed not long after the Iraqi war began, so I'm sure the Bushie friends have made even more money since then.....

    Wow, and it only took 7.5 years for 50% of the population to wake up to reality. Oh well, my ppeeps might be slow, but they get there eventually.
