And he still goes lower!

Sour news for GOP in poll:

Six months before Republicans try to hold on to control of Congress in the fall elections, a new poll shows President Bush has slid to the lowest approval rating of his presidency, and a majority of voters say they’ll vote for Democrats in November.

A USA TODAY/Gallup Poll taken Friday through Sunday found Bush’s approval rating at 34%, two points under his previous low. He also received the lowest ratings of his presidency on his handling of the economy, energy and foreign affairs. He tied his previous low on Iraq: 32%.

The poll showed Democrats leading 54%-39% among registered voters who were asked which party they would prefer in a congressional race.

Another week, another record low poll. Wow.

What I really want to see at this point are some per-district polls rather than these nationwide ones. Is the disapproval of Republicans widespread enough to overcome the gerrymandering which is largely in their favor, or is it concentrated in already “blue” districts?
