President Bush’s Approval Rating Drops Again
While he is not at his lowest point ever, President Bush’s overall job approval dropped to 25 percent in June, down from 28 percent in May, according to an American Research Group poll released today. Seventy-one percent of Americans disapprove of the way the President is handling his job.
The pollsters say Bush’s drop in approval from May came from Republicans and independents. Although 61 percent of Republicans approve of the President’s job performance, that is down from 70 percent in May.
And the President’s rating dropped even more when respondents were asked about the way Bush is handling the economy: 23 percent approve, 64 percent disapprove and 4 percent are undecided. Fifty-five percent said their own financial situations are getting worse.
The poll was conducted June 16-19 and has a margin of error of +/- 2.6 percent.
