November 04, 2005|From Times Wire Reports

President Bush's job approval rating fell below 40% in three national polls conducted after the indictment of an administration official in the CIA leak case and the withdrawal of another aide as a Supreme Court nominee.

Thirty-five percent of the public said they approved of how Bush was handling his job in a CBS News poll, lower than any two-term president in the last 48 years except President Nixon, according to the network's data. A Zogby International poll found Bush's job approval rating at 39%, as did a survey by the Washington Post/ABC News.
