View Diary: CBS News poll: Bush's numbers collapsing (170 comments)

    I never used to think that Bush's numbers could get down into the 30s, but now I'm starting to reconsider.  The latest polls are suggesting that there is only one issue he is over 50% approval on, and that is the general war on terror.  But that issue is one he is dropping fast on and his approval rating is in the low 50s--51 in this poll and 54 in the recent Gallup poll.  I expect this rating to be under 50, as well, before long.

    Which leaves Bush running on nothing but that sparkling personality of his.  And at this point, I think even that is starting to wear thin on some people.  Every morning, Americans are rising to more bad news and looking around and realizing that the country is completely fucked.  Bush is tanking.  He has been for months now and it has only started to speed up.

    I imagine there will be a few small bumps in the poll for him between now and the election, but the overall trend will be downward.  And it's starting to seem very possible that he could get down into the 30s.  I'm not going to count on it, but I won't rule it out either.

    It sure would be nice, that's for sure.
