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.Atrios has a pony for Holden, but everyone ought to get one this month.
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.
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?
