Some More Polling

Rasmussen (which tends to find things more positive for the Republicans than other pollsters) has this to say:

2006--Forty-three percent (43%) of American adults approve of the way George W. Bush is performing his role as President. That's his lowest Job Approval Rating since January 12.

Confidence in the War on Terror has also fallen sharply. Just 39% of Americans now believe the U.S. and its allies are winning. Thirty-six percent (36%) believe the terrorists are winning. This confirms last weeks poll showing that the Dubai Ports deal has tarnished the President's national security credentials. Just 17% of Americans favor that deal.

The President earns Approval from 48% of White Americans, 5% of Black Americans, and 39% of all other Americans.

There is something very fatalistic and sad about the fact that nearly half of all white respondents to this poll still approve of George. They'd probably always approve, even while our little train careens driverless into the abyss. He is a good man, after all...
