End-of-presidency job approval ratings are used by some pundits to forecast the odds of a President's being re-elected or getting a voter-initiated pink slip.

A USA Today/Gallup poll (adults, ME3%), taken 9-10 October, showed that 47 percent of American voters approved "of the way George W. Bush is handling his job as president" and 49 percent disapproved.

Compare that with the following chart. His father's approval rating was 56 percent, yet he was a one-term president.

So it shows me just how much polls really tell us.

Notice I didn't copy the article because the text and "analysis" of the NUMBERS (which is all I posted) is often surface and stupid.

I trust polls more than the demographic analysis of a journalist. No offense to journalists. (Okay, just a little).
