Bush Approval Hits Record Low on Heels of Immigration Buzz

From Rasmussen:

The President’s Job Approval has fallen to the lowest level ever recorded by Rasmussen Reports. Just 34% of American adults now Approve of the way that George W. Bush is performing his duties as President (see comments on comparing Approval Ratings from different polling firms). Just 71% of Republicans now offer their approval. His support among men has fallen to 35%.

The President’s ratings have tumbled each time immigration reform dominates the news. While the President advocates a “comprehensive” reform focused primarily on legalizing the status of illegal aliens, our most recent survey shows that most voters favor an enforcement first policy. Last year, following a nationally televised Presidential Address on immigration, just 39% of Americans agreed with the President’s position.

Full write-up here, including a masterful debunking of the myth that pro-enforcement Americans are "anti-immigrant."
