Bush State by State Numbers Still Low

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.

    Happy New Year, Pamela, Ron, Nick, kj, and everyone else here at Dem Daily!

    *** This is the year we take back our government. ***

    (Can you believe that Ohio number? Must be some serious buyers’ remorse happening there. Or even more theft last year than we thought.)

    fwiw, I posted the following at my blog. Hope you all like, and will join me in the effort:

    Happy New Year: The Year of the Citizen

    I want to wish all our readers a happy, healthy and productive year in 2006. I hope we will work together to bring real, positive change to America and to our nation’s role in the world.

    There is much to be done, but it will be rewarding work. Two inspiring quotes come to mind:

    Margaret Mead:

    Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.

    John Kerry:

    There is no more important word in the American language, other than love, than citizen.

    Let’s make 2006 the Year of the Citizen.

    We can take back our government this year, we can make significant strides in taking back the media, and we can start to revitalize the notion of citizenship in this country.

    It’s on us to make it happen.


    Again, Happy New Year to all, and let’s go get our country back!
