Bush beats Nixon, Truman

Link

There was stiff competition, but Dubya won out in the end. He is now the least popular president since they started recording approval ratings.

Yeah, that's from a poll of 1,246 people so it could be wrong, but I felt like Bush has been getting a bit of a free ride around here lately.

My favorite part:

"No other president's disapproval rating has gone higher than 70 percent. Bush has managed to do that three times so far this year," says CNN polling director Keating Holland. "That means that Bush is now more unpopular than Richard Nixon was when he resigned from office during Watergate with a 66 percent disapproval rating."

Don't count him out entirely just yet. There're two more months for Bush to stay in the office. He has an opportunity to break his own record a couple of times.
