Poll: Bush Less Popular Than Nixon In Final Days

From Politico:

With 71 days left in office, President Bush is less popular than President Nixon was at the time of his resignation, according to data released Monday by CNN and Opinion Research Corporation.

The new poll, taken Thursday through Sunday, showed an approval rating of 24 percent and a disapproval rating of 76 percent.

CNN released a chart showing presidential "disapproval" ratings in CNN or Gallup polls for each president dating back to Harry Truman. This list shows the percentage of Americans who disapproved of the way each president was handling his job.

And the question remains: Who are those 24% and what the hell are they thinking? Good to remind readers that Ray-Gun wasn't the popular glorious leader rose colored glass wearing Republicans want to remember he was. He was only marginally ahead of Carter at the end of his term.

I think the other 24% are hard-core anarchists who refused to provide accurate information on political surveys. If I'm wrong, I think we need to send these people to Cuba.

That's the 24% who would vote for Satan if he were a Republican. I swear most of them must live in Tennessee.

How friggin' sad. Eight years and trillions of dollars spent going in the wrong direction.

And now that the train is derailing, 76% of us say, "George, you're an idiot."

So where the hell were you 76%ers in 2004???

We The People got some 'splainin' to do!
