Bush approval rating in the latest Harris interactive poll has reached 29%. I'm of the opinion that it will certainly hit as low as 25%. I think it is fairly likely that it will get below 20%. For a long time people have given the President the benefit of the doubt and have been inclined, as problems have arisen, to accept whatever explanation the administration has given. But once people start taking seriously the possibility that George Bush might not be very good at this job, it is nearly impossible to conclude that he is anything short of terrible. Trust in the administration is gone so their efforts to spin are less and less effective. The press corps still takes the administration seriously, but few others do. I do believe that there is really no limit to how low Bush's approval can go.
