By now, we've heard about many polls showing Bush's numbers at new lows. The NY Times poll has just 42% saying Bush is doing a good job. Just 33% approve of the GOP-controlled Congress, with nearly 75% of Americans saying this GOP-controlled Congress did not share their priorities.

I thought an interesting sidenote was that after this past November's election Bush's poll rating was just 51%. Both Reagan and Clinton had numbers nearing 60% when each of them were fresh off their second-term victories. To a point, Bush's numbers were already slumping in a relative sense months before this recent plunge.
