Bush Approval Sinks Further

Two new polls show Bush 's approval slipping even further. Pew Research has Bush's job rating at 33% this month, a seven-point decline vs. February.

SurveyUSA's new 50-state tracking poll also shows Bush's approval declining. According to SUSA, the President's job approval remains over 50% in only three states (Utah, Wyoming, and Alabama) and his nationwide approval (weighted for population) is down to 36% approve, 60% disapprove. The negative 24-point spread between approval and disapproval is the highest ever recorded by SUSA in eleven months of tracking Bush's approval.

Overall, Bush's approval in the RCP Average dropped to 36.4%. I'll have to go back and check to be absolutely sure, but I believe that's a new low for the President as well.
