I predict this will cost him reelection.
Well it looks like CNN is wallowing in a job well done.
Yeah, BFD, don't vote for him next time!

Welcome to the forum.
Says who, CNN? Just keep on feeding your self-delusions.
Well he lost my vote..
Welcome to FR.
I don't plan on it. LOL
Take this poll and shove it. I am sure that the president is worried about it and his reelection chances.
Seriously, he'd best be gangbusters tomorrow night. His administration could definitely use a shot in the arm.
He tends to get exactly what he deserves.
I as a Republican want my president to be likable, reelection time or not.
I predict dogbarks77 won't be responding to anything and will be zotted within the hour.
Frankly I think you're full of crap.
And this is one of the most biased forums going as far as George Bush is concerned. If he can get only 67% here, he's in trouble.
And I, as a conservative, don't give a hoot as to whether the media and the populace at large (2/3 who likely can't name the VP or SecDef) likes our president. I expect leadership and tough decisions during difficult times. We've got 'em here.
You think it will take that long?
Since you are a troll-hunting expert, I thought you ought to consider the gloom-and-doom posts (100%) that this new Freeper has brought us. I know, I know....he's just a realist Republican.....uh huh.....
Didn't we have a President who ran an Administration by the polls??
Likeable? Why? That's WAY down on my list of qualities a leader needs to have to lead well. Not that I actually believe the opinion polls on this one.
Trouble? You mean he may not be able to retire in Jan/09?
There are plenty of things I'm unhappy about but the populartity contest isn't one of them.
Polls failed in 2004...
Disapproval of him here, however, is for considerably different reasons than what will be cited in polls.
Exhibit A: Bush's policy on the border and illegal immigration.
Though come to think of it, that's probably not helping Bush out much in the polls, either.
Right, 30% disapprove because he's too conservative. 30% disapprove because he is not conservative enough. 40% figure he is pretty much doing what is possible under the current political conditions.
When you are in a non-election cycle, the disapproval numbers of a president go up because of the dissatisfaction of people who are actually on his side. If it were an election cycle that segment goes down because of comparison to potential opponents.
CNN can always be counted upon to get out the lies ahead of any Presidential news conference. Strange that they didn't take this poll AFTER the press conference tonight!
That does it !! I'm not voting for W. in the next presidential election .
Looks like the grifter's poll numbers are going up while GW's are going down.
Or could it be that because of this 'buddy buddy' love of Clinton everyone is judging ALL of the Bush family in a different light?
The left never fails to write garbage that always attracts attention. The President is working hard to finish a job with absolutely nothing but negatives from the MSM. He knows pulling out now would simply delete all that has been done so far. America has always and will always be short on patience. It is a virtue for sure to stay the course. I notice this morning the press is saying that GITMO isn't what they have been reporting, and maybe the press needs to improve on how deep they go for the facts...wow, fat chance!! Do you suppose they will send an earstwhile reporter to Iraq to get the facts?? Never happen!!
The old Friday to Sunday interviews just to make sure CNN is more likely to get the negative answers they want.
But barely a third of those polled -- 34 percent -- said the United States is winning the conflict against a persistent insurgency; 14 percent said the insurgents were winning and 50 percent said neither side had the upper hand.
So 84% do not believe the insurgents are winning.
No third term for you!
Very good point.
"Polls failed in 2004..."
I like to think we FReepers had a lot to do with that failure. In the days leading up to the election I voted in favor of John Kerry on nearly every one. I did it along with a large number of FReepers just to show the fallibility of polls. When it came down to the election I voted for Bush in the one poll that really counted.
Right troll, Jimmy Carter was a very likable guy but 1 dumd$hit of a President.
You know what is different from here and your friends over at dumb ass underground? We tolerate dissent and discussion in this forum. Welcome to FR.

No, but it will cost the Republicans the 2008 election. A popular Republican leaving will usher another Republican in. Look at Papa Bush, or even Mayor Mike Bloomberg who followed Rudy Guiliani into the job.
No, no he's not.
And in other news, my cat weighs in at 24 pounds.
Who has the "Oh No Mr. Bill!" Graphic?
In related news, the number of FReepers disapproving of dogbarks77 posting performance has risen to the highest level of his membership, according to the FreeRepublic Troll Poll released Tuesday.
Frequently they "cook" polls. They ask more Dems than Reps or they ask them biased questions.
Pew poll made by Princeton Survey Research found that:
68% Americans have a favorable view of Network television news such as ABC, NBC and CBS.
the opinions for
"Large nationally influential newspapers such as the New York Times and the Washington Post" were: 38% favorable, 25% unfavorable and 35% "can't rate".
for Cable News, such as Fox, CNN and MSNBC, approval was 67%
Stinky smelly troll alert. Of course it cames to be a republican.
