According to CNN news, out of 1,012 adult Americans only 32 percent approve of Bush's performance, 60 percent said they disapprove and 8 percent said they do not know.
According to the report, It was one of four conducted within the past 10 days that have yielded similar results: a Pew Center poll carried out April 7-16 gave Bush a 35 percent approval rating; a Fox News/Opinion Dynamics poll carried out last Tuesday and Wednesday gave him a 33 percent approval rating; and an American Research Group poll carried out Tuesday through Friday gave him a 34 percent approval rating.
Just how low is 32%? Bush has majority support in just four states. Check out this map.
