CBS News: Polls continue to plummet

CBSNews.com: Print This Story: "President Bush and the Republican Congress show nearly record low ratings while Democrats are viewed much more favorably in their performance on the issues that matter most to Americans, according to the latest CBS News/New York Times poll.

Only 31% of those polled approve of Mr. Bush's job performance and 68% believe the United States is worse off today than it was before Bush became president.

Personal evaluations of Mr. Bush are the lowest they've ever been during his presidency. On the public's confidence in Bush's ability to handle a crisis, 51% had been the previous low in September 2005. That figure is now at 50%. The President's handling of the Hurricane Katrina crisis is tied to that decrease. "

One of the blissful things about being in as faraway place as Thailand, with its own political machinations going on at the moment, was to get virtually NO news about Bush or his cronies. The local English language papers, when I read them, may carry some minor item deep inside in the world briefs. It really was refreshing.
