Bush Bleeding Out in Kentucky

Kentucky's got a Republican Governor, a Republican State Senate, two Republican U.S. Senators, and a 2-1 Republican advantage in U.S. House seats.

But now, according to Survey USA, President Smirky is almost as unpopular in Kentucky as fighting-for-his-political-life Governor Ernie Fletcher.

Like Fletcher in another recent poll, Bush is losing in just about every category.

Bush gets the thumbs-down from more than 50 percent of Kentuckians of both sexes, every race (except Hispanics - what's up with that?), every geographical region, independents as well as Democrats, moderates as well as liberals, civilians and members of the military (HA!), and people who think the U.S. won the Vietnam War.

Good Grief, even 48 percent of Kentuckians who are pro-life disapprove of Bush.

The Usurper's still hanging on to Republicans, Conservatives, people who think Global Warming is "made-up," and people who think we're going to win in Iraq (whatever that means.)

In every category, the "Not Sure"s ranged from zero to 4 percent, except 24 percent of Hispanics (what IS that deal?) and nine percent of "Other" races (86 percent of whom disapprove of Bush - more than any category except the 88 percent of people who think we're going to lose in Iraq.)

Yeah, yeah, Smirky's 38 percent approval in Kentucky is still way above his national rate of 29 percent, but this isn't Manhattan.

If Kentucky's deserting Bush, can Florida be that far behind?
