I just noticed this Rasmussen Report from yesterday showing an all time low for Bush: [http://www.rasmussenreports.com]

Sunday April 16, 2006--Thirty-nine percent (39%) of American adults approve of the way George W. Bush is performing his role as President. That's the lowest level of approval ever measured by Rasmussen Reports.

Sixty percent (60%) disapprove of Bush's job performance, the highest level ever recorded.


And once again, the strong disapproval number is higher than the total approval number.

Bush Job Approval

Strongly Approve 20%
Somewhat Approve 20%
Somewhat Disapprove 17%
Strongly Disapprove 43%
RasmussenReports.com

As most of the readers of DailyKos are aware, Rasmussen weights his results to a preset party identy percentage.  This has consistently kept his approval ratings for Bush at least 4-6% higher than any other pollster.  If Rasmussen is showing Bush at under 40%, does this mean Bush is now flirting with the low 30s - high 20s approval?

No wonder the administration is pushing back so hard on the Generals who criticized his handling of Iraq.

Nothing else to add then this made my morning....

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
