Bush's Approval Numbers Keep Slip Sliding Away

Newsweek has a web exclusive new poll:

As U.S. troops endured a deadly week in Iraq, 61 percent of Americans polled say they disapprove of the way President George W. Bush is handling the war in Iraq, according to a new NEWSWEEK poll. Thirty four percent say they approve.

This is Bush’s lowest rating on Iraq and the first time it has dropped below 40 percent in the NEWSWEEK poll.

And 50 percent of those polled say the United States is losing ground in its efforts to establish security and democracy in Iraq; just 40 percent say the U.S. is making progress there.

I have one thing to say to the 34% who approve of Bush's handling of the Iraq war:

This is your brain on faith, you idiots!
