The polls tell us
"Eighty-two percent of Americans now say the country's seriously off on the wrong track, up 10 points in the last year to a point from its record high in polls since 1973. And 31 percent approve of Bush's job performance overall, while 66 percent disapprove."
Key finding: "Bush now has gone 40 months without majority approval, beating Truman's record (also during economic discontent and an unpopular war) of 38 months from 1949-52."
40 months is 3 years (36m) + January, February, March, April.
40 months takes you back to before
January 2005.George W. Bush has never broken 50% at any time during his second term.
That's a first.
