The National Economy
It's all coming apart.
A new survey by the American Research Group incates that Americans are displeased with the President. 43% of those polled say they approve of the way Bush is handling his job and 51% disapprove. When it comes to the economy, it gets worse. 37% say they approve of Bush's handling of the economy and 57% say they disapprove. 59% believe the economy is getting worse, and 51% of Americans (usually the most optimistic people on Earth) believe that a year from now it will be worse still.
It doesn't look much better for the Republican-controlled Congress. In an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, 47% of those surveyed said they want to see Congress controlled by the Democrats in 2006, as opposed to 40% who prefer the GOP.
In the words of the President, "Fool me once, shame on, uh--fool me--uh--we can't get fooled again!"
