Bush Get's More Bad Poll Numbers

Bush's strength has always been in two areas: national security and his personal credibility. With support for the war creeping down the one thing Bush had to maintain was his credibility. According to a NBC/Wall Street Journal, that has not happened.
The NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll showed the percentage of Americans who believe Bush is "honest and straightforward" fell to 41 percent from 50 percent in January, while those who say they doubt his veracity climbed to 45 percent from 36 percent.
What did this? Was it a lack of movement on issues like Social Security or the constant bad press from Karl Rove and Tom DeLay? It is hard to say, but whatever is pissing the American people off, it shows no sign of slowing down.
The new poll also showed Bush's overall job approval rating slipping to 46 percent from 47 percent in May, while his disapproval rating crept upward to 49 percent from 47 percent
If you have a theory or thought I am curious to hear it.

I think America is finally waking up to the fact that the current administration is a total joke and waste. Maybe shrub will be a man of his word and fire Rove, but somehow I doubt it.

I don't think this is unprecedented for Bush. During the first 2/3 or 2004 he was at comparable levels of public support, I recall. Only massive advertising and slandering of his opponent saved his skin.

This is the natural level of support for Bush given his divisive method of governing.

I lay the blame squarely where it belongs - Clinton's penis...
