Poll: Bush approval mark at all-time low

(CNN)-Beset with an unpopular war and an American public increasingly less trusting, President Bush faces the lowest approval rating of his presidency, according to a national poll released Monday.

Bush also received his all-time worst marks in three other categories in the CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll. The categories were terrorism, Bush's trustworthiness and whether the Iraq war was worthwhile.

Bush's 37 percent overall approval rating was two percentage points below his ranking in an October survey. Both polls had a sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points.

We could go on, but read it for yourself. Don't like the numbers? Why not try the GOP approach and question this blog's patriotism? There you go! Why not quiz the Iraqis and their newly afforded freedoms? Why not...grow a pair and admit you lied.
