Bush Approval Falling Further in Red States
Disapproval of Bush compared to August has increased slightly from 60% to 61% in Ohio, with 37% approving in both polls. Bush’s approval dropped from 44% to only 39% in Florida. Disapproval increased in Virginia from 52% to 58%, with approval falling from 42% to 40%.
Currently Bush has an approval of over 50% in only ten states (Utah, Idaho, Mississippi, Nebraska, Wyoming, Texas, Louisiana, North Dakota, and Oklahoma). I bet that many people from Lousiana who would rank Bush unfavorably were either unavailable to pollsters or relocated out of the state.
