Following up on a dismal CBS News survey earlier this week, two new polls by Fox News and CNN/USA Today/Gallup bring more bad news for President Bush. From the Fox News poll:

- 39 percent of Americans approve of the job Bush is doing, only the second time Bush has fallen below 40 percent in Fox polling

- 81 percent believe Iraq is likely to end up in a civil war.

- 69 percent oppose allowing Dubai Ports World to manage U.S. ports.

From CNN/USA Today/Gallup:

- 38 percent approve of the job Bush is doing, a rating “mired near its record low” of 37 percent.

- 47 percent approve how he is handling terrorism, “down 7 points since early February and a record low.”

- 64 percent disapprove of Bush’s handling of Iraq, a record high.

- 52 percent do not find Bush “honest and trustworthy,” tying November’s worst-ever mark.

UPDATE: Quinnipac:

Only 36 percent of voters approve of the job President Bush is doing, while 58 percent disapprove, his worst approval rating in a Quinnipiac University national poll and down 9 points from his 45 – 48 percent approval rating one year ago.
