I'd like to see this poll redone now (I'm sure it's out there, but I don't have the energy to find it), but it does point out the obvious fact Fox News is the advertising arm of the Bush White House. As of 2003: "48% incorrectly believed that evidence of links between Iraq and al Qaeda have been found, 22% that weapons of mass destruction have been found in Iraq, and 25% that world public opinion favored the US going to war with Iraq. Overall 60% had at least one of these three misperceptions". When you break it down by network, 80% of Faux viewers believed at least one of those. Now that Bush is Mr. 25% , he's only two points away from Nixon when he resigned (23%) and three points from Truman (22%) for the lowest approval rating ever. He's already overtaken Truman for the largest range of approval rating (T: 87 - 22, B: 92 - 25) How low can he go? People liked Carter (28%) and Papa Shrub (29%) more than him! (Source) Anyone who is a republican after this administration is really stupid. Not that I have any faith that the Dems won't find some way to fuck things up. They probably will and we'll get stuck with Thompson or Romney. Fuck.
