Bush’s approval rating is now down to 28%, the lowest of his tenure as POTUS, and a drop of 62% from his high in September 2001. As Gallup notes, both Bush Sr and Jr went through 60% drops in their approval during their tenure. It must be genetic, I guess.
Strangely (or maybe not) approval among Republicans is at 66% (versus 24% for independents and 6% for Democrats). That’s some mighty strong Kool-Aid there.
The lowest ever for a President was 22% (for Truman in February 1952). If the economy continues to tank, I think we can expect that Bush will "reach" that mark.
