Bush will leave office as the most unpopular president in history, more unpopular then Nixon

From CNN

CNN Deputy Political Director

WASHINGTON DC (CNN) — On the day that President-elect Barack Obama is visiting the White House, a new national poll suggests that the current occupant at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is the most unpopular president since approval ratings were first sought more than six decades ago.

President Bush has the lowest presidential approval rating in the history of such polling.

Seventy-six percent of those questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Monday disapprove of how President Bush is handling his job.

That’s an all-time high in CNN polling and in Gallup polling dating back to World War II.

"No other president’s disapproval rating has gone higher than 70 percent. Bush has managed to do that three times so far this year," says CNN polling director Keating Holland. "That means that Bush is now more unpopular than Richard Nixon was when he resigned from office during Watergate with a 66 percent disapproval rating."

The man leaves office in disgrace, even more reviled then Nixon who left office at threat of impeachment.

The republicats better get with the program, if they want to claim relevance, if they want to reclaim their party, if they want to rebuild a future for their party, they are going to have to give their constituents what they want;

A rebuke of this administration and it’s policies
