According to the latest Reuters/Zogby poll, President Bush’s approval rating now stands at a near historic low of 24-percent. Only Richard Nixon – shortly before he resigned in disgrace over Watergate in August of 1974 – had a more dismal approval rating of 23-percent.
Furthermore, 66-percent of this nation thinks we are heading in the wrong direction as a country and say the mood of the nation is “bleak.”
The survey of 991 adults included a strong indication of just how dismayed Americans are with the current government. Would-be-voters described their attitude towards Bush and Congress as simply “throw the bums out” and that Bush is now entirely “irrelevant.”
America’s acrid taste for its government was further illustrated by marks given on the Bush administration’s foreign policy stance, of which, only 18-percent approve of and gave it high marks. Adding, “Americans are giving up on this government."
Longtime pollster John Zogby summed up American’s soured outlook for their government by stating, "They tell us (Zogby) they want action on health care, education, the war and immigration, but they don't believe they are going to get it."
