Albany - Mr. Bush's approval rating remains close to its all time low. So how do South Georgian's feel about the presence of Americans in Iraq?
When the United States turned over sovereignty to Iraq, Bush's approval rating was at an all time low of 41%. That rating has risen, ever so slightly to 42%, but those who believe military action in Iraq was the right thing to do, has dropped dramatically.
In November of 2004, 53% of Americans believed military action was the right thing to do. Now only 45% of Americans share that belief.
On Tuesday, we posted this question on our website: Do you approve of America's presence in Iraq? Yes or No. As of 4:30 PM, 172 people responded, with 68%  approving, 32% disapproving. We took that same question to the streets of Albany, and got a mixed response.
Ted Williams says, "I have reservations about whether we should be there or not." He says, "I think we need to get out of Iraq."
Patricia Manning says, "I have mixed feelings about that. My husband is retired military and he certainly thinks we need to be there. On the other hand, I'm upset about the loss of life we have had."
A loss of almost 2000 coalition troops, most of them Americans. Ericka Johnson says, "I really don't think our troops should be over there, being prior military."
We also asked this question: Do you approve or disapprove of the job President Bush has done overall? "Overall I don't. I don't approve," says Williams. Johnson says, "I think we need a new President."
But for now, this President is calling the shots, and tonight, he will hopes to reassure Americans that the decisions he makes, are the right ones. You can watch President Bush's speech to the Nation tonight at 8 PM on WALB NEWS 10.
