19%! Ponies all around!! Whee!!!

A new poll comes close to breaking the glass floor for Dubya's approval ratings:
George W. Bush's overall job approval rating has dropped to a new low in American Research Group polling as 78% of Americans say that the national economy is getting worse according to the latest survey from the American Research Group.

Among all Americans, 19% approve of the way Bush is handling his job as president and 77% disapprove. When it comes to Bush's handling of the economy, 14% approve and 79% disapprove.
Atrios has a pony for Holden, but everyone ought to get one this month.

This brings up the interesting question: Is it possible for his approval ratings to go below zero? Can poll respondents, say, "borrow" on future or past positive ratings, and use these credits to really express what they think?

(h/t to ThinkProgress too)
