Dick Morris: Bush in free fall

This from a Republican strategist

Just when control of Congress hangs in the balance, President Bush is losing the popularity he so desperately needs to gain control of the Senate and keep power in the House.

For the first time since 9/11, Bush’s job-approval ratings have dropped below those Bill Clinton maintained throughout his second term, even in the midst of impeachment proceedings.

The last time a mid-term election resulted in a partisan rout, in 1994, the auger of Democratic disaster was a drop in Clinton’s job approval in the period immediately before the balloting.
