Polls reveal more bad news

The public is crabby.

Two Field Polls released Sunday and today (in Adobe PDF format) revealed record-low approval ratings in California for President George Bush and continued dissatisfaction with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and the Legislature.

Just 28 percent of those polled approve of Bush’s job performance, “the lowest rating given to any sitting U.S. president in California since August 1974, shortly before Richard Nixon resigned from office following the Watergate scandal,” wrote pollsters Mark DiCamillo and Mervin Field.

Schwarzenegger received a 41 percent approval rating while 26 percent approve of the Legislature’s performance.

We’ll see if the public expresses its angst on Tuesday, the only poll that really counts: Election Day.
