Bush's approval rating drops to an all time low

A fourty-one precent approval rating and you would even lost to Jimmy Carter in a hypothetical election?

What more can I say? I'll let the poll number speak for themselves.


The next graphic is more alarming for Bush.

In a sign of just how severe the damage to the President’s standing caused by Katrina is, the Zogby America survey finds that, despite his re-election last fall, President Bush would lose to every modern president since Jimmy Carter, the one-term Democrat who left office amid record unpopularity and a presidency rated, at the time, dismally. He would also lose to his own father, who left office amid an economic recession triggered, in part, by a devastating hurricane.
