The big news here is that the support of our nation's great and glorious leader is still in the toilet.
According to a just released NBC/WSJ poll done by Hart/Newhouse, there's bad news for this administration and worse news.
The bad news is found in the response to the following question:
All in all, do you think that things in the nation are generally headed in the right direction, or do you feel that things are off on the wrong track?Of those polled, a full 68% felt that the nation was headed on the wrong track and only 19% think the nation's headed on the right track.
19%? Who are those people?
As far as I can tell, these are the worst numbers of dubya's presidency and you have to go back to July of 92 to find worst numbers. I guess that means that throughout the two Clinton administrations, more people felt the country was "on the right track" than now.
The worse news for dubya is found in the response to this question:
In general, do you approve or disapprove of the job that George W. Bush is doing as president?Of those polled, only 29% approved of the job dubya is doing with 66% disapproving. And as far as I can tell these are the worst numbers of dubya's presidency.
