Bush has some impressively low poll numbers these days:
Just 15 percent of Americans approve of the way President Bush is handling the economy, while 78 percent of Americans disapprove. Even a majority of Republicans disapprove of the Presidentâ€™s handling of this issue.
Overall, the presidentâ€™s approval rating has dropped five points from last week and is now the lowest of his presidency. Only 22 percent of Americans approve of the job heâ€™s doing, while 70 percent of Americans disapprove – a new high.
President Bushâ€™s job approval rating has dropped 68 points from its all time high of 90 percent back in October, 2001. It now matches Harry Trumanâ€™s previous all-time low, recorded by Gallup in February 1952. The 70 percent disapproval rating is higher than any measured since Gallup began asking about presidential job approval in 1938.
A sixty-eight point reversal. I am proud to be a member of that 10% that never approved of the job he was doing. To the fifty-eight percent of the population who have come to see the light (all too many, regrettably, after November 2004), welcome aboard.

Whoa! That’s almost as low a rating as Congress has! Justly deserved, all around.
The Republicans in Congress drag down the ratings of the body as a whole.

Or, you could say that if Republicans score a zero, the Democrats, with their 15 or 16% must bring it all the way up to 9%!
