Bush approval rating, finals week edition


Could the immigration bill be the cause of this latest downturn?

Here's the reasoning: Something like one-third of all Americans still, in the face of all available evidence, support the president's disastrous war and general approach to foreign policy. This leads me to believe that these 30 percent or so just don't care much about the actual facts of foreign policy -- they care about militaristic nationalism, period, who cares about consequences.

But immigration is a domestic issue. And conservatives hate the immigration bill Bush wants to pass -- amnesty and all that. Even conservatives who will never believe the Iraq war was a mistake may be turning against Bush now because they're horrified by this pending immigration bill compromise. Whatever it takes, I guess.
