A Giant Sucking Sound 

Survey USA provides monthly polling numbers on various issues, state by state. The latest approval/disapproval polling on President Bush shows some startling reversals of fortune. There are only four states as of March 15th in which a majority of Americans "approve" of the job President Bush is doing.

In Arkansas, Bush has fallen 28 points since November, to a 34 percent approval rating. In Tennessee, things aren't much better for W, at 39 percent. But Mississippi? Those folks still loves them some Bush — barely: 49 percent of Magnolia Staters approve the Prez, versus 47 percent who disapprove.

C'mon, Mississippi! Time to catch up with the rest of the country.
