According to a new poll conducted by Newsweek magazine, George W. now has the lowest approval rating of any President in a decade. 28% of the people polled think Bush still has what it takes, while everyone else seems to want him and his pretzel chewing antics out of the White House as soon as possible.
In the same poll, 62% (out of the over 1,000 people polled) think that Bush is “stubborn and unwilling to admit his mistakes,” when it comes to the Iraq War.
It also seems that President Don’t-I-Make-You-Nervous-When-I-Speak is dragging most of the candidates in his party down with him, as Newsweek finds “each of the leading Democratic contenders beating the Republican frontrunners in head-to-head matchups”. Bush’s name was invoked only once during one of the first Republican candidate debates last week, while Ronald Reagan (who was an actor before he was President. An actor.) was mentioned a total number of 19 times.
Anyone who’s taken Statistics knows polls don’t always represent everyone fairly, but even without Newsweek’s newest survey, it’s painfully obvious that Bush isn’t doing too well these days. And it’s not just because he talks like someone who’s been dropped on his head a few times. Or because he stares into the camera like a frightened baby.
Don’t quote me or anything, but I think the American public is having issues because of things like this.
