Lame duck watch

ABC News/Washington Post poll -- "President Bush starts the last year of his presidency with the worst approval rating of his career" -- 32%.

The "war was not worth fighting," said 64%. That's up 2%.

Of post-WWII presidents, "Bush is just two months away from Truman's record of 38 months without majority approval -- far beyond any other." Betcha Bush sets a new record in 2008.

Unsurprisingly, 77% said the U.S is "headed off on the wrong track."

Intensity of sentiment, moreover, remains very heavily against the president. Fifty-one percent strongly disapprove of his work overall, while just 16 percent strongly approve -- strongly negative by better than a 3-1 ratio.
