Bush's poll numbers are perpetually going up, but somehow they never manage to rise.

Rating down despite foiled terror plot and Lebanon cease fire; Democrats hold generic Congressional lead

President Bush’s job approval rating dipped two points in the last three weeks, despite the foiling of an airline terror plot and the adoption of a cease–fire deal between Israel and Hezbollah forces in Lebanon, a new Zogby International telephone poll shows.

The survey was conducted Aug. 11–15, 2006, included 1,018 respondents, and carries a margin of error of +/– 3.1 percentage points.
