One reason you don't hear the Republican presidential candidates invoking the name of the current president so often: A Washington Post/ABC News Poll has George W. Bush's approval rating at 32 percent, the lowest number that poll has recorded since Bush took office in 2001.

It's a new number, but it's the same old story. As ABC notes, Bush is just two months away from breaking Harry Truman's record of going 38 months without approval from a majority of Americans.
