Bush Creates Approval Rating Deficit

The next two people elected to the White House will take office with negative poll ratings because President George Bush's approval rating has sunk so low, 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, the faltering economy and soaring gas prices 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.
White House spokeswoman Dana Perino on Tuesday said the president and his cabinet were considering an approval rating stimulus package to be implemented in the next few months.
