Survivor Georgia: Bush gets exiled

First, the good news:
Bush Hits Rock Bottom In Nation's "Reddest" State

A recent InsiderAdvantage / Majority Opinion poll shows 60 percent of Georgians disapprove of President Bush's job performance:

Q. Do you approve or disapprove of the job George W. Bush is doing as President?

Approve: 38%

Disapprove: 60%

Undecided/Don't Know: 2%

Poll conducted Jan 29-31 among 500 registered voters, weighted for age, race, gender and political affiliation. Margin of error: plus or minus 4 percent.

InsiderAdvantage’s Matt Towery: "These are by far the worst numbers we have ever seen for President Bush in Georgia, which has been thought of as the most Republican state in the nation.

"For Bush to be losing the support of this state by such a crushing margin suggests there is evidence that his support among Republicans is becoming softer and softer. If this slide continues, his unpopularity could cripple the GOP nationally in 2008.

On the other foot:
"Oddly enough, approval ratings for Republican Gov. Sonny Perdue and the direction in which Georgia is headed is the exact reverse--with high numbers for the GOP in the Peach State. So, it seems Bush is on an island on his own, one which is on the verge of sinking."

Well at least my imagination can buffer that reality show with visions of a stormy night on Cumberland, with Der Shrub huddling under the pews in that little chapel where JFK Jr. got hitched.


Is Bush, by his poll rating, the least popular President ever? Would be interested to know who is if he isn't.
That would be useless, since most Americans don't know much about any prez before FDR.
Plus, I think PPPs (presidential performance polls) are a construct of the modern media age, likely not going much past FDR if even that far.

Still, I hear William Henry Harrison (POTUS #9) was an absolute bastard, though he only had 30 days in office to wreak havoc.
