Bush Approval by State ... Still Trending Down
Since SurveyUSA's last state-by-state approval ratings of President Bush back in June (here), we've seen continued difficulties (to put it incredibly nicely) in Iraq, the signing of several hugely irresponsible pieces of legislation, continued rising gas prices, etc. etc. So it's not entirely surprising that the polling firm's newest data (available here) shows Bush's approval ratings continue to slide. The new data features a great trend-line feature so you can see how the ratings have changed state by state over the last few months. Take a look at Missouri - wow.
No matter how much the White House says they don't pay attention to polls, this has got to be of serious concern if they are at all concerned with the status of Republican candidates in 2006 and 2008 ... let alone of course the overall well-being of the country.
