Bush Approval 2% Among Blacks

In what may turn out to be one of the biggest free-falls in the history of presidential polling, President Bush's job-approval rating among African Americans has dropped to 2 percent, according to a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll.

Pat: Well, no wonder George Bush Doesn't Care About Black People. We can see that obviously, black people don't care for George W. Bush. 2%. Wow. 98% of blacks do not like George W. Bush. There went the much-vaunted outreach Republican.

Tim: This worries me, honestly. I can take some solace in that his approval among Hispanics is 36%; while not great, it's at least salvagable, and that's important when it comes to the largest and fastest-growing minority. But man, I can't see that being good for us. We need to fight this battle, guys. Come on, we're the smart party. Let's not f*ck this up for '06 and '08. Jesus Christ, meet with the NAACP already! I know they're full of shit, but just meet with them. Any organization with "African-American," "Black," "Negro," "Colored," whatever in the title, meet with them! Expand funding for inner-city schools, bring more token blacks, talk about how much you love that ghetto booty, come on! This is unacceptable!

Pat: Now, now. Bush doesn't care about polls. Because polls are stupid. And of course, since polls are reflections of what the public thinks, I would say that means Bush doesn't really give a damn about the public. Or, you know, black people. Because he therefore doesn't care that literally 98% of blacks do not like him.

Tim: ...wait a minute. This latest poll included 807 people nationwide, and only 89 blacks. Never mind. Panic mode...turn off. This "poll" was like asking a black co-worker if he likes Bush, and then reporting "0% of blacks like Bush" or "100% of blacks favor Bush!"

Pat: The Pew Research Center is just out with its latest poll, which has a larger sample, and it finds Bush's approval rating among blacks at 12 percent. Okay, fine. 12%. Still abysmal.
