Bush/Cheney Approval Ratings in the Toilet


Only 33 percent of Americans support what W. is doing, and only 32 percent approve of what he's doing in Iraq, according to a CBS News poll. The good news, is that he hasn't yet quite sunk below Nixon's all-time low. The bad news is that Dick Cheney is making Nixon look like a beloved hero. Currently 19 percent of Americans support the new Dick.

But note that CBS is polling on approval and then comparing it to other presidents during scandals and impeachments: Clinton, Nixon; but CBS is not polling on the public's desire for impeachment. Why not?

The President's job approval rating is now 35 percent, his lowest rating since taking office in 2001. More than half the public disapproves of the job he is doing as president.

PRESIDENT BUSH'S JOB APPROVAL
Approve
35%
Disapprove
57%

77 percent of Republicans approve of his job performance, and the President retains the support of some of his key constituencies. 61 percent of white evangelicals approve of the job he is doing (up from 55 percent a month ago), as do 54 percent of conservatives.

Democrats give the President widespread disapproval, and he gets little support from those Americans who profess no strong ties to either side of the ideological divide. Only 31 percent of Independents and 30 percent of moderates now approve of the job he is doing (nearly the same as a month ago).
