Disagree.  Once the President bombs Iran's nuclear facilities, we'll see him back in the 50's.

I say 52% on January 20, 2009.

Yeah, just after China buys us.

50% of the two survivors = he's the only one to approve; Laura's lost confidence? Wink

20%, maybe lower. I just can't see Bush doing anything competent in the next two years.

January 2009?  Lame ducks always recover at the last minute.  George H.W. Bush's approval got back over 50% after he lost the election.

Since I don't think that can keep going down forever, I'm going to guess 30%, but maybe a "lame duck" boost after the 2008 election like True Democrat suggests.

A simplified tax code, privatized SS/medicare, and tort reform are all popular ideas.

The economy will boom like mad in 2005, 2006, especially if Bush gets reelected.

A simplified tax code, privatized SS/medicare, and tort reform are all popular ideas.

So if he's successful, 56-61%. Smiley

This is hilarious.

20% seems like a reasonable estimate. Some people on some other board thought that was way too high, but I'm sticking with it.

22%, LOL.

A president's success can't be measured by where things are at the day he leaves office. Legacy is more important which nowadays places him around 41%.

Was privatized SS ever popular? I believe it's one of the things that destroyed Goldwater in 64.

Whoever becomes president will probably become the most hated person alive as oil prices will go through the roof.
