George W. Bush - Almost as Hated as Nixon?

Days before Geo's State of the Union address, polls show that the only president who had a lower approval and higher disapproval rating at this point in his presidency was Nixon. And that was January 1974, hip-deep in watergate and just 9 months before his resignation.

Reagan 2/86 31% disapproval; 65% approval
Clinton 1/98 27% disapproval; 59% approval
Ike 1/58 27% disapproval; 58% approval
Nixon 1/74 64% disapproval; 26% approval
and Geo W?
January 2006 - 56% disapproval; 42% approval.

Some may take this to mean that 58% of the population disapproves of what Bush is doing. I take it to mean that 42% of the population was busy watching American Idol and didn't hear the question.

The trick is to get those 58% to the voting booths this year to start the purging process!

By the way, happy belated birthday!
