"The number has slipped 6 or 7 points in the last six to eight weeks," said G. Terry Madonna, director of Pennsylvania's Keystone Poll, talking about trends in that bellwether state. "I don't think there's any doubt that Iraq is the main reason, but a lot of other things keep happening."
In Connecticut, nearly half the 503 people surveyed rated Bush's performance poor, while 27 percent called it "fair." Nationally, the latest Bush approval rating, compiled by Fox/Opinion Dynamics April 18 and 19, found 33 percent approved of the job Bush was doing and 57 percent disapproved.
If you're a Democrat running for office the news doesn't get any better than this. Bush's numbers can't sink much lower, and even Dems running against moderate Republicans can argue that a Democratic majority in congress is best way to stop the Bush agenda. The obvious exception to this is Joe Lieberman. I wonder how his numbers compare to Bush's at the moment. It would be interesting to do a statewide poll questioning voters about both Lieberman, Bush, and their continued support of the Iraq war.
