Don't Expect To See This On The Evening News...
...but not only are Bush's poll numbers dropping, but the poll numbers for Democrats are going up. (Thanks to Atrios for the catch.) See what happens when you actually start acting like an opposition party against an unpopular president? Filibusters are good. (And remember when the media used to follow Clinton's poll numbers oh-so-closely? Each time he dropped below 70%, it was touted gleefully as evidence that his support was finally softening in view of the myriad ginned-up scandals thrown at him. Meanwhile, with only a few brief blips, Bush has been a good twenty-plus points below 70% for much of the past year and a half, yet Bush is still treated in the press as if he were still basking in the circle-the-wagons glow of 9/11.)
