Putting President Bush's Approval Rating Into Perspective

According to this poll, 20% of Americans approve of the job President Bush is doing. That's 20 out of every 100 people in the entire United States of America. There are approximately 300 million people in the US. 20% of that is 60 million people.

Think about that for a minute. 60 MILLION PEOPLE APPROVE OF THE JOB PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH IS DOING. That is a staggering number. It is a "60" with six zeros following it. It looks like this: 60,000,000. As of right now, approximately 5 people approve of the job I am doing, and one of them is a poodle. I would give almost anything to have the approval of 60 million people.

How many people approve of the job YOU are doing, dear reader (please don't get defensive- I approve of the job you're doing)?

It's possible this is just more bias from the MSM. They will report the "20%" number, but they won't put it into perspective. 60 million is a lot of people, and it's an impressive number. Remember that the next time you're watching Keith Olbermann.
