"Bush Free Fall Continues in New Polls"

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.
