Youth gives Bush a poor grade; Still popular with 40-50 year-old white midwestern homophobic gun-toting Republicans

According to a report by Bloomberg.com, President Bush is finding new all-time low approval ratings amongst young Americans, who "are far more critical of his job performance than the broader population." A Bloomberg/LA Times poll found that his approval rating hovered around 20 percent, with 53 percent disapproving and 28 percent with no opinion.

The Bush administration had a quick response to the news, publishing a set of its own in house polling numbers that confirmed that with the President Bush voting base, his approval rating was above 85%. Though the base group was relatively smaller in comparison to the Bloomberg/LA Times poll, White House press secretary Snow said that the numbers still hold true.

"If you poll 'all young people', you're going to get an odd number, because not all young people agree on things," Snow said. "On the other hand, if you do what we did, which is target a small group of like minded individuals, say, all the people living in the state of Montana who live on a ranch and make more than $200,000 dollars a year, your results will be more accurate. We are just looking for scientific accuracy here."

When asked specifically about how they got their 85% data figure, Snow refused to comment, but did mention in passing that "[the Aministration]'s gotten pretty good at keeping those minorities away from the polls, if you know what I mean. Don't want 'em, you know, screwing up the stats."

Harvard professor Whitney Teamore said that it is not uncharacteristic of the youth to be fleeing from the president during times of war, given most of the people their age are the ones fighting and dieing in Iraq. "On the other hand, the 85% approval rating from 40-50 year-old white midwestern homophobic gun-toting Republicans is a shock to us at Harvard. You would imagine that number would be closer to 100%. There hasn't been a President in the history of the nation that has agreed more with this fringe minority of voters."

of course the youth hate Bush, look at how the media and MTV spin everything. You lib's hate Bush so much that you wan't everything he does to fail, even if that means America losing! If Bush was a clinton/democrat everything he's doing would be fine an dandy! It was ok for Clinton to bomb other countries and sell us out to the Chinese and North Koreans, right!

The real reason Bush's poll numbers are low is due to his lac of enforcing the border and we know Democrats ain't going to do shit about it either!
