I hate to say I Told You So, but ... well ...
Preliminary exit poll results indicate that nearly six in 10 voters today disapprove of the way President Bush is handling his job.
About four in 10 approve. That's down from 53 percent approval in 2004, and 67 percent just before the 2002 midterm elections.
About four in 10 "strongly" disapprove of the president's work, more than double the number of strong approvers.
Intensity of sentiment for and against, by contrast, was about equal in 2004: Thirty-three percent strongly approved of the president's performance, and 35 percent strongly disapproved. And in 2002, strong approvers dominated, quite a contrast from today.
I said earlier this week that the networks couldn't resist using the exit poll data for longer than an hour after they got it in confidence. As it turns out, I had the timing exactly correct. And what did it tell us? George Bush's approval rating.
Well, that's a scoop.Sphere It View blog reactions
