Biggest Loser

There's actually a bit of piling on in this article which is rare. I can remember how the press treated Clinton when his polls were low (kicking him repeatedly). Of course they treated Clinton like he was incredibly unpopular when his approval was in the 60s, too.

At 39 months in the doghouse, George W. Bush has surpassed Harry Truman's record as the postwar president to linger longest without majority public approval.

Bush hasn't received majority approval for his work in office in ABC News/Washington Post polls since Jan. 16, 2005 — three years and three months ago. The previous record was Truman's during his last 38 months in office.
