Meanwhile, Bush reached an unwelcome record. By 64%-31%, Americans disapprove of the job he is doing. For the first time in the history of the Gallup Poll, 50% say they "strongly disapprove" of the president. Richard Nixon had reached the previous high, 48%, just before an impeachment inquiry was launched in 1974.
Curiously, while Bush has beaten Nixon's disapproval record, he is still safely above Nixon's approval low. That means more people in the "no opinion/undecided" category during Nixon's last days while everyone has an opinion about Bush. There's still plenty of time for Bush to beat Nixon's other record.
