Bush's Tanking Approval Rates

State by state polling shows Bush's disapproval rates an average of 14% higher than his approval ratings, weighted by population.  That's a 41% approval on average by state and a 55% disapproval.  SurveyUSA out of Verona NJ, which tends to lean Republican as far as polling goes, has the figures.

Washington State gives him a 40% approval and 57% disapproval; Oregon gives him a 41% approval and 56% disapproval; and Idaho gives him the highest approval in the nation, 59% vs. a 36% approval rating.  Now we know what our fellow progressives in Idaho are up against.

After researching your provided link for stats on the figures you show, I thought it just as important to note that the particular survey you give as example is conducted with the following criteria (as noted on their website):
*600 individuals
*All over 18 years of age
No way to know if they are imprisoned, employed, upstanding citizens or crack-addicted street-dwellers. These types of surveys mean nothing to those of us who pay attention.

Nothing different from any other poll.
