It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood

A USA TODAY/Gallup Poll taken Friday through Sunday found Bush's approval rating at 34%, two points under his previous low. He also received the lowest ratings of his presidency on his handling of the economy, energy and foreign affairs. He tied his previous low on Iraq: 32%. The poll showed Democrats leading 54%-39% among registered voters who were asked which party they would prefer in a congressional race.

That last sentence has to be causing some sleepless nights among Republicans.

CBS--Only 33 percent approve of his job performance, Mr. Bush's lowest approval rating yet in CBS News polls. Mr. Bush appears to be losing support from his own party. His approval rating among Republicans has dropped to 68 percent. The poll found that 74 percent of Americans disapprove of the president's handling of the gas crisis. Even more think that the administration has not developed a good plan to get gas prices under control.
