Americans Disapprove of Bush's Handling His Job as President, Says New Poll

A new ABC News-Washington Post poll, which breaks down Bush's approval ratings and tracks them from February 25, 2001 to July 21, 2007, shows that Americans are entirely dissatisfied with Bush's handling of his job as president.

Here's an excerpt of the poll questions and the results that are shown on the site:

1. Do you approve or disapprove of the way George W. Bush is handling his job as president? Do you approve/disapprove strongly or somewhat?

-------- Approve -------- ------- Disapprove ------ No
NET Strongly Somewhat NET Somewhat Strongly opinion

7/21/07 33 16 17 65 13 52 2

As for Bush's handling of the War in Iraq, the war on terrorism, and ethics in government, the poll also found the following:

2. Do you approve or disapprove of the way Bush is handling (ITEM)?

7/21/07 - Summary Table*

Approve Disapprove No opinion
a. The situation in Iraq 31 68 1
b. The US campaign against terrorism 43 56 2
c. Ethics in government 31 65 4

So much for the conservatives and neoconservatives' claim that the "liberal media" is terribly biased, given that the government media is leaking out the truth about how many Americans are disillusioned with the entire political process.

At least Ron Paul is revving things up for the public as well as many disenfranchised voters.
