Is America turning blue?
An electoral map based on Bush's approval ratings:
Unfortunately, Bush isn't running again, and I haven't seen any evidence that dissatisfaction with Bush is translating into a more general unhappiness with the GOP, though intuitively it seems like it should. However, with the Democratic Party's terminal ineptitude, they may very well fail to capitalize on any of this.
Speaking of Bush's approval numbers, AMERICAblog is reporting that he's down to 28% nationally. No link is given, however, and that's not in line with the other numbers I've seen recently, so take it with a big old chunk of salt, because it's probably bogus. But, FYI.
