How unpopular is Bush?

This unpopular: We'd prefer Teh Gay, thanks:

More Americans express doubts about a candidate who served in Bush’s cabinet (59%) than one who is gay or lesbian (53%).
Ouch. And after all the time and energy the GOP has spent on their Hate Teh Gays! campaign. That's gotta sting.

Also according to the same Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, "eight in 10 Americans would be 'comfortable' or 'enthusiastic' about an African-American or woman running for president." Hmm. Eight in 10 sounds pretty high to me. I wonder how many of those were people thinking, "Hell yeah I'd be enthusiastic about the other guys running a black or a chick!"

That's probably too true to be funny.
