Another New Low


WASHINGTON — Six months before Republicans try to preserve 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 this fall.
A USA TODAY/Gallup Poll taken Friday through Sunday found Bush's approval rating at 34%, two points below his previous low. The president also received the lowest ratings of his presidency for his handling of the economy, energy and foreign affairs. He tied his previous low for Iraq: 32% said they approve of the job he's doing there.

(to be clear each new low is within a given poll, not a new low across all polls)
