Bush Posts His Highest Unfavorable Rating Yet
Well, Karl will not sleep this weekend. Just posted to PollingReport.com is the Thursday-Friday Newsweek Poll just completed by Princeton Research yesterday. Bush logs in his highest unfavorable rating of his presidency, jumping five points in a week to 38%, and up eight points in the last two weeks. Again, he was never that high with his unfavorables at any time before 9/11. Obviously his economic plan rollout, the heightened war rhetoric, and difficulties with North Korea and our allies are driving these numbers. The White House will certainly be counting on and praying for a SOTU bump in the favorables, but how much will they get and for how long before they resume a negative track once again?
Interestingly enough, note how the Newsweek write-up of their own poll does not even mention the recent jump in the unfavorables for Bush.
