If it polls like a lame duck, it’s a lame duck

SurveyUSA released a 600 sample poll on March 19th (dated on their site: 3/27/08) taken in Missouri from March 14th through the 16th which shows that dubya’s poor approval rating continues to be. But just remember, that still means that approximately 1 in 3 persons you pass on the street thinks he’s doing a good job. What’ll it take for them to get it? I’ve given up on comprehending objective reality as an option for them. Maybe we should all ask them to pass around what ever they’ve been drinking. The margin of error is 3.9%.

The poll was sponsored by KCTV in Kansas City.

He’s doing better among Independents and a little worse among republicans. Democrats definitely don’t like him (Do you hear that McSame?).

dubya only has a net approval among the republican “fear” base (terrorism and immigration). He has net disapproval among those worried about the economy, health care, education, Social Security, and the environment.  

Even those worried about Iraq think he sucks.
