It’s a good thing that President Bush doesn’t care about the polls but I wonder how John McCain feels about being in the shadow of this:
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.
But of course that doesn’t include Richard Nixon right?
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
oops, I guess it does.
At least he’ll go down in history as number 1 at something.
