Another day, another poll, another low: The new Washington Post/ABC News Poll puts George W. Bush's approval rating at just 38 percent, the president's worst showing in that poll since he took office in 2001. Forty-seven percent of the poll's respondents say they "strongly" disapprove of Bush's job performance -- more than double the 20 percent who still say they "strongly" approve of the job the president is doing.
