Poll Position: Approval & Economy

American Research Group published new poll results today, and it’s not good for “President” Bush as it shows his approval rating to be a lowly 25%....

I’ll pause a moment to let that sink in…

The 25% mark matches Bush’s lowest approval rating by the American Research Group.

And the bad news doesn’t end there.

In addition to the approval ratings, the poll also asked Americans about the economy, more specifically if the national economy is getting better.

It’s not…

8% of Americans say that the national economy is getting better, 18% say it is staying the same, and 69% say the national economy is getting worse.

And when they were asked if the national economy will be better a year from now, 18% say yes that is will, 27% say it will be the same as it is now, and 53% say it will be worse.

But the real tell is that a total of 38% of Americans rate the national economy as excellent, very good, or good… meaning that 61%, 61%! rate the national economy as bad, very bad, or terrible.

What does this mean? It means that the only people who believe the economy is doing good fall into one of two categories; they work/live in the White House or are goats that follow the herd.

And the only group that has lower ratings than Bush is Congress... so how's about we get off our asses out there in DC and do something like, I don't know... GOVERN?
