Bush Approval Rating: How Low Can He Go?

The latest Newsweek poll has the President at 26%, meaning just a hair under 3 out of every 4 people disapprove of the job he's doing. (Which begs the question: what the hell is wrong with one in four of us?!)

Only Nixon has polled lower, and that was at the height of Watergate, just 7 months before he was forced to resign or face certain removal from office.

And here's the kicker: Nixon's nadir was 23%, just 3 points lower than Bush is at now.

How 'bout 20? Who'll give me 20? 19? I said 19, going once...
