Late last year when the presidential campaigns started, George Bush had a 36% approval rating in the state of New Hampshire according to American Research Group. But the latest American Research Group poll shows the approval rating for the President dipping down to 14%.
USAElectionPolls.com suggests the reason for George Bush's low ratings to be because of the presidential campaign. "Approval ratings for George Bush have been dipping in New Hampshire because voters are being exposed to candidates from both political parties that have criticized the president."
All of the Democrats have come out staunchly against the president as they always have. On the Republican side, Ron Paul is the most vocal of all the candidates.
USAElectionPolls.com made the following statement:
"We know that Ron Paul is only getting at most 2% in any national or state poll but once Republican voters in New Hampshire realize Ron Paul is their only anti-war candidate, he will gain momentum. If you found 100 people that liked the color red and you offered them 10 shirts to choose from each of the color green, they will be forced to choose green. If you offered them an 11th option that is red, the majority of those 100 people would choose the red shirt. Ron Paul is the 11th option that resonates with the voters, they just don't realize it yet. Remember, Paul Buchanan won New Hampshire in 1996 with the same platform."
In a lot of election predicting, you also have to look at what issues voters want and with whom their feelings resonate well with. Because these polls are not stagnant, they are constantly changing. And the leader tomorrow will be different from today and different from yesterday. He should win according to the web site but they stress that Ron Paul's low poll numbers may keep voters from voting for him because of feelings that "he cannot win".
The web site also points out that this drop in approval ratings from 36% to 14% largely is from the Republican and Independent base because as they calmly asserted Democrats are just as against Bush now as they were 6 months ago. It is the Republicans and Independents now that are changing their opinions of Bush.
