A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows that George Bush's approval rating is at 39%.
It also showed that just 2 % of African-Americans approve of the job that Bush is doing.
On the Today show this morning, Matt Lauer and guest Tim Russert seemed surprised at this statistic, with Tim Russert remarking that he could not find a time when any President had received a measly 2% approval rating from African-Americans in a poll.
Well, this statistic has me somewhat baffled, too; 2% seems way too high for Bush, who has shunned the African-American community at almost every turn, refusing to meet regularly with the Congressional Black Caucus, and refusing to accept the NAACP's invitation to speak at their annual conferences. And then there's the matter that Bush just lost an entire city of predominantly African-Americans.
I'd like to find that 2%, and ask them why they support a 'President' (not a term I would use for Bushie) who clearly does not have their best interests in mind.
