Bush still unpopular
I take only moderate joy in reproducing that graphic. It's about what I expected. In the course of last month's debate over polling methodology, I made this prediction:
Bush's approval will fall or remain relatively flat, and in particular, will fall among Republicans.I've waited with bated breath, and I can state that I nailed it.
October Republican approval: 77%
November Republican approval: 70%
Overall approval, perfectly flat.
Variation in the proportion of the population represented in each party was also within the margin of error, indicating a reliable sample, not a wildly unbalanced sample of the Kansan public, as FDM alleged.
FDM will undoubtedly admit no error, but my readers know better.
