"Approval ratings take big plunge in Kentucky in November
"November 14th, 2007 Matt Gunterman
"The Survey USA approval/disapproval numbers for Pres. George W. Bush (R) took a significant turn for the worse [from the perspective of Bush loyalists like Sen. Mitch McConnell (R)] in November in Kentucky and are approaching their respective historical extremes. From 41/57 in October, Bush’s present approval/disapproval standing is 35/62. The president’s worst showing in SUSA’s numbers in Kentucky came in May 2006, when he stood at 34/64.
"You can find the numbers here. Trends of note are:
"1. An utter collapse in support among Kentucky men. Bush went from 51/47 in October to 39/58 in November. The numbers among women stayed relatively stable: 30/66 in October and 32/65 in November.
"2. The president’s approval among Conservatives dipped noticeably and remained deplorable among Moderates and Liberals.
"3. His approval among Democrats and Independents worsened significantly, and his numbers among Republicans stayed near historic lows.
"4. His approval fell in every geographic region of the state.
"Boy, oh, boy. McConnell surely is a political genius, isn’t he? Why show leadership for Kentucky when he can show lemmingship with George W. Bush?

"Blogs For Bush ditches Bush.
"The right-wing website Blogs For Bush is no more as of this week. The site has announced that it is changing its name to Blogs For Victory. A possible explanation for the name change? “Falling ratings that seem to coincide with their President’s popularity.”

"Make that into a bumper sticker with Mitch’s face on it and I could be tempted to buy one!
"Heck it’s such a good comment (imho) that you should forward it to the organizations running ads against mitch.
