It would appear that a new Gallup poll has found that Pres. Bush’s approval rating has just hit 51%. According to the pollsters, this means that Bush has it in the bag.
The share of Americans who say they approve of the job Bush is doing inched over the 50% mark to 51%. No president who was at or above 50% at this point in an election year has lost.
But it’s just a poll. The only thing that matters is the voting, both the popular vote and the Electoral College.
