Unpopular and Unlikable

Last Monday, Karl Rove said that the president's dwindling popularity was due to decreasing support of the Iraq war--not to a dislike of the president himself. "People like this president," he asserted. "They're just sour right now on the war."

Eh, not so much.

It's not just the way he's doing his job. Americans apparently don't like President Bush personally much anymore, either.

A drop in his personal popularity, as measured by several public polls, has shadowed the decline in Bush's job-approval ratings and weakened his political armor when he and his party need it most.
Tough break. Couldn't happen to a more deserving fella.
