Bush approval rating at new low

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush's job approval rating has hit a new low, with 29 percent of the U.S. public saying he is doing an "excellent or pretty good job," down from 35 percent in April, according to a Harris Interactive poll in The Wall Street Journal Online.

The poll of 1,003 U.S. adults said 71 percent of Americans said Bush was doing an "only fair or poor job," up from 63 percent in April. It said the survey was conducted May 5-8 and had a 3 percent margin of error.

When I was a kid, I had a computer game called "Shadow President." You got to be President, and you could do anything from controlling trade to launching nuclear attacks. A high approval rating was how you won the game, a low one lost it.

In the game, when you got down into the 20s you either got impeached or assassinated.

I'm just amazed that 29% are saying that Bush is doing an "excellent or pretty good job" That is fucking mind-boggling. A friend of mine (part of the 29%) not only doesn't believe that the opinion polls are accurate, he actually thinks that history will remember Bush favorably.
