How Flaccid IS He?

Poll numbers saying that Bush has hit a new all-time low are not new.

This new poll, however, pegs his job approval rating at 36% - you guessed it - an all-time low. To put it in perspective, that's limper than Nixon's rating during Watergate.

Add to this a ranking of US Senators and their current "net approval", which is obtained by subtracting the disapproval rating from the approval rating. Four senators owning some of the worst ratings are Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA), Sen. Mel Martinez (R-FL), and Sens. Mike DeWine and George Voinovich (R-OH).

Not to put too fine a point on this, but I'll belabor the point once more: Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Florida hold a total of 69 electoral votes, and four current Senate seats held by Republicans, where six seats would be needed for a Democratic majority once more.

Can Democrats take advantage before Rove hands the Republican party the Viagra?

UPDATE: No sooner did I post this, than another poll came out - this time the Harris poll - showing the President's approval rating as... well.... you know....
