So, where would you think GWB would be more appreciated than average? How about someplace traditionally Republican in the South, like Virginia, for instance? A state that hasn't backed a Democrat for president since 1964. Surely they like Bush there... Or not. His approval rating in Virginia is only 39%. His numbers are even worse in fervently conservative states like North and South Carolina, where it's only 35%.
At least there's Texas though, right? Wrong. 42% approval, 56% disapproval. At this rate, Texas may soon find itself going Democrat.
In fact, there are only three states where Bush is still more popular than he is unpopular. Idaho (52% approval, 45% disapproval), Utah (51% approval, 46% disapproval), and Wyoming (50% approval, 49% disapproval). Even that's changing, however. Could the Democrats have a shot even in Utah in the not-too-distant future? A lot of Utahns think so.
With any luck, the Democrats will exploit this advantage by running active campaigns in all 50 states... because right now, none of them are off the table.
