50...who will give me 48...can I get a 43? How about a 30?

The latest approval ratings are out for the President. I don’t know how many different ways there are to say “free-fall”, but that’s what it looks like.

The Quinnipac Poll also says that Americans heavily favor Roe v Wade decision:

American voters support the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v Wade decision 65 - 30 percent, the highest level of support in two years of national polls by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University.

This doesn't bode well for Bush, whose bread and butter supporters are heavily anti-choice. It also makes Bush's coattails for the 2006 election much more of a hindrance than a help.

A bellweather for the 2006 Congressional races may be next week in the form of Ohio's second congressional district, where Democratic candidate Major Paul Hackett could upset GOPer Jean Schmidt. OH-2 is historically a heavily Republican district so even a slim margin of victory for Schmidt would be considered a major problem for the GOP.

Stay tuned.
