Finally, some good polling news for George W. Bush: A new Rasmussen Poll shows that he isn't the most unpopular president of all time.

That distinction belongs, at least for the moment, to Richard Nixon, who is viewed unfavorably by 60 percent of the country.

The bad news for Bush: He's trailing Nixon by only one percentage point. And with 564 days left in his presidency, he's still got plenty of time to catch up.
