    CNN just reported that President Bush’s new job approval rating is at 36 percent, suggesting it was “a bounce for President Bush.”

    But this isn’t a bounce. Bush’s early May approval rating was 34 percent. Each poll has an error of +/-3 points, meaning Bush’s numbers haven’t changed at all.

    Is the media really this desperate for Bush’s approval rating to rebound?
