Bush Creates Approval Ratings Deficit

President Bush's approval rating has sunk so low that the next two people elected to the White House will take office with negative poll ratings, analysts announced Wednesday.
"He's the first president with an approval deficit," said Larry J. Lundsberger of the Carlson Institute for Public Policy. "That means he's used up so much political capital, he has to borrow from his next two successors. We may be feeling this for decades to come."
Lundsberger cited the rapidly deteriorating situation in Iraq and the controversy over a deal to turn over management of major ports to a foreign company as key factors in driving the poll numbers into the basement. "Having your vice president shooting folks doesn't help matters much, either," he added.
