      Bush Approval Rating Hits the 20s for First Time

      NEW YORK President Bush's job approval rating has fallen to 29%, its
      lowest mark of his presidency, and down 6% in one month, according to
      a new Harris poll. And this was before Thursday's revelations about
      NSA phone surveillance.

      Of 1,003 U.S. adults surveyed in a telephone poll, 29% think Mr. Bush
      is doing an "excellent or pretty good" job as president, down from 35%
      in April and 43% in January.

      Roughly one-quarter of U.S. adults say "things in the country are
      going in the right direction," while 69% say "things have pretty
      seriously gotten off on the wrong track."

      Some 28% of Americans said they consider Iraq to be one of the top two
      most important issues the government should address, up from 23% in
      April. Interest has faded slightly in the immigration issue.

      Other recent major polls have pegged Bush's approval rating from 31%
      to 37%.
