Survey USA has released the December numbers of President Bush’ approval ratings broken down by state. Forget what you may have heard about Bush’ approval ratings improving. The fact remains that in only 9 states does Bush have an approval rating higher than his disaproval rating.
Meanwhile, Bush’s disapproval rate is at least as high 53% in all the Kerry states and is a whopping 62% in Ohio. His disapproval rate in Missouri is 52% (to 44% approval) and is also 52% disapproval (to 46% approval) in Florida! Going into 2006, only one Democratic Senator (Nelson of Nebraska) is in a state where Bush has higher approval than disapproval ratings. Hope this makes your New Year a little more fun.
