On the day of his State of the Union speech, President Bush's approval rating has dropped to a new low of twenty-eight percent, and sixty-four percent "disapprove of the way he's handling his job," according to CBS News.

"Two-thirds of Americans remain opposed to the president's plan for sending more than 20,000 additional U.S. troops to Iraq roughly the same number as after Mr. Bush announced the plan," CBS News reports. "And 72 percent believe he should seek congressional approval for the troop increase."
