Absolute Zero?

Last week I noted that Bush's approval rating in New York State had dipped to a frosty 29%. But that was Blue State bastion New York, not exactly indicative of the nation's political leanings.

Or so I thought. In the most recent national poll conducted by NBC/Wall Street Journal, Bush's approval ratings across the nation have plumetted to 39% (the lowest of his Presidency as recorded by NBC/WSJ). 39% is not 29%, but its pretty bad.

But wait, it gets worse. According to the same poll, only 2% of African Americans approve of Bush's performance. 2%. Two measly little percents. What exactly is two percent in poll-speak? You could probably get more Americans to say the Earth was flat, that Santa Claus was real or that the moon was made of cheese if you polled it. In other words, operation big tent isn't exactly working.
