“It doesn’t take a genius of public opinion research to isolate some likely causes. Americans are deeply depressed about the economy, gas prices are at a record high, [and] there is a war still underway that a majority of Americans call a mistake.” – Frank Newport, Gallup
Sometimes a quote says so much more than the words that are spoken… in this case it shows just how sick people are of “President” Bush's policies... and they're letting the anger be heard in polls across the country.

One such poll is the most recent Gallup poll that shows Bush’s approval rating has fallen to 28%, “a record low” for his administration.

To give some historical perspective, Bush’s approval numbers are “lower than that of any president since World War II”, with the few exceptions of Jimmy Carter, Richard Nixon and Harry Truman…

What’s more shocking, that his numbers are that low or that there are still members of this population that believe he’s doing a good job?

Hey thanks for the great blog, I love this stuff. I don’t usually do much for Earth Day but with everyone going green these days, I thought I’d try to do my part.

I am trying to find easy, simple things I can do to help stop global warming (I don’t plan on buying a hybrid). Has anyone seen that is promoting their Earth Day (month) challenge, with the goal to get 1 million people to take their carbon footprint test in April?... I took the test, it was easy and only took me about 2 minutes and I am planning on lowering my score with some of their tips.

I am looking for more easy fun stuff to do. If you know of any other sites worth my time let me know.
