Bush Approval Map – Sept 2006

OK, it’s been a couple of months since I posted the Bush Approval Map. If you came to the Blend late, this map is culled from data at They track opinion polls in all 50 states.

This data represents Bush’s Net Approval Rating. You take Approval Rating minus Disapproval Rating and you get Net Approval. Positive (+) states like Bush more than dislike, and are colored in shades of red. Negative (-) states dislike Bush more than like, and are colored in shades of blue. The lighter the color, the more extreme, the “purpler” the color, the more neutral the feelings toward Bush.
