more falling poll numbers

Bush's Approval Rating Falls Again, Poll Shows

President Bush's positive job rating continues to fall, touching another new low for his presidency, the latest Harris Interactive poll finds.

Bush's current job approval rating stands at 34%, compared with a positive rating of 88% soon after 9/11, 50% at this time last year, and 40% in August.

And he's not alone. Cabinet members, Congressional leaders and both parties in Congress have also seen their ratings slip, with Democrats seeing one of the biggest dips in approval, the telephone poll of 1,011 U.S. adults shows.

Vice President Dick Cheney's approval ratings slipped to 30% this month from 35% in August, while Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld's approval ratings dropped to 34% from 40% and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's approval ratings fell to 52% from 57%, according to the poll.

Bizarrely enough, the Dems overall numbers have dropped as well! I can only guess that bush is f'k'ing up so badly that people do not trust any politician any longer. Dems are desperately trying to repair the damage that he has caused, but I guess that despite everything, the people still believe the repug smear machine.
