Newsweek’s latest poll puts President Bush at a 28% approval rating, the lowest rating of any president since the lowest point of Jimmy Carter’s presidency in 1979. (This is the second poll to put him at 28%.) For reference, Nixon was at 24% the day that he resigned. He’s left Republicans in a stunningly bad position for the 2008 elections. They’re certain to lose even more seats in the House, and it’s going to be an uphill battle to retain the presidency.
