Bush Approval: Newsweek says 36%

A Newsweek poll completed 8/24-25/06 finds approval of President Bush at 36% with disapproval at 56%. That's a two point decline in approval from 8/10-11, immediately after the plane plot story broke, and a one point increase in disapproval. With the addition of this point to the data, the trend estimator (dark blue line) stands at 37.2%, remaining quite flat.

See yesterday's post on the new Time poll for a more extended discussion of recent results. The Newsweek poll is entirely consistent with the current trend estimate of approval.
