AP poll: Bush approval rating hits all-time low

Public approval of the job President George W. Bush is doing now matches its all-time low, with widespread discontent over how he is handling the war in Iraq, efforts against terrorism and domestic issues, an AP-Ipsos poll released Thursday said. Only 32 percent said they were satisfied with how Bush is handling his job, the same low point the measure hit last January. On issue after issue, approval of Bush's efforts matched previous lows, underscoring the challenges Republican presidential and congressional candidates will confront next year when they face voters. Twenty-eight percent were satisfied with his handling of the war in Iraq.
