Bush at 40, according to Gallup. I’m telling you, if he gets right on immigration 45 beckons! From Gallup:

President George W. Bush’s job approval rating has edged up slightly higher in Gallup’s latest poll, and is now at 40% for the first since early February. The July 6-9 poll finds 40% of Americans approving and 55% disapproving of the job Bush is doing as president. After averaging 42% approval in January and early February, Bush’s ratings began to decline in mid-February, ultimately dropping to his administration’s low point of 31% in early May. Since that time, Bush’s approval ratings have shown a slow, gradual improvement.
