No Good News for GOP in Recent Polls

By Alan Abramowitz

While there have been very few polls in the past 2-3 weeks, the two polls that have come out recently indicate that George Bush's approval rating is continuing to slide. A new Fox/OD poll shows Bush at 36% approval, 53% disapproval, tied for his lowest rating ever in that poll. And a new AP/Ipsos poll has Bush at 36% approval, 62% disapproval, a new low in that poll. The AP/Ipsos poll also gives Democrats a 16 point lead in the generic vote for the House of Representatives--the largest Democratic lead to date in that poll.
