There’s a certain Zen-like peacefulness to observing the inevitability of a lead balloon plummeting to earth.

SurveyUSA released a 600 sample poll on April 25th taken in Missouri from April 11th through the 13th which shows that dubya’s poor approval rating is going down, down, down. Or, if you prefer, circling the drain. The margin of error is 3.8% (the bigger the difference, the lower the margin of error).

The poll was sponsored by KCTV in Kansas City.

Do you approve or disapprove of the job George W. Bush is doing as President?

He’s doing much worse, much worse among Independents. His republican base is the same. Democrats definitely don’t like him.

Yep, those gas prices sour everyone. A recession doesn’t help anyone’s mood either. It’s the economy, stupid.

dubya continues with 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.  

Those most worried about Iraq still think he sucks. So much for trotting out propaganda on television.
