Bush Job Approval At 37%, Gallup Poll; Bill Now Seen More Popular Than Hillary

President Bush's job approval is at 37% in the latest Gallup poll, down from the 40% recorded earlier this month. But the president's numbers have been showing a gradual improvement from their low point of 31% in early May but are lower than they were at the start of the year.

Bush's ratings are back up to 82% among Republicans, accounting for the stabilization from the free-fall of the spring.

Here are the Gallup numbers by issue:

GALLUP POLL SHOWS BILL MORE POPULAR THAN HILLARY

Gallup also released a poll today showing former president Bill Clinton has a higher "favorable" rating than his wife, Sen. Hillary Clinton. The former president's favorability rating is at 59%, while Sen. Clinton's is at 51%. The difference, according to the poll, is that Hillary has an image problem among men.
