    I think the groups are self-described.

    Yeah, of course they do.

    He did things as POTUS which they approved of at the time, so with the exception of the bailout, which I believe most AMERICANS object to (regardless of whether your of a liberal or conservatve bent) naturally they'll continue to approve of him overall.

    Most liberals still approve of Clinton and Carter, too, don't they?

    It doesn't look like they are. A true conservative would never support Bush and would never be considered a moderate or liberal conservative. It appears they've grouped neoconservatives with true conservatives.

    I still think that this lumps too much together... I can support the guy for some things.. and still whole-heartedly disagree with his approach to the bailout, etc...

    I'm with you. The poll needs to be redone. It's useless in its current form.

    where is this vast legion of "conservatives" who "never supported Bush"?

    Republicans voted for him twice, and supported his legislative and war agenda 95% of the time. I rarely ever heard a republican in congress speak out against Bush. And they voted with him almost every single time.

    If the contention is that "conservatives" never supported Bush, then there must not be any conservatives in the republican party, and "real conservatives" must only be a few hundred people nationally, mostly lurking on message boards and pretending to have never supported or defended bush.

    Yeah but that's the problem with polls like this.

    The question is about his overall proformance, not any specific issue.

    Overall did you approve of his time as POTUS or not?

    For a majority of his time, yes I did support him in terms of approving of decisions more so than disagreeing with them... I think he has done a pretty bad job in the past year or so... so currently I would say I disapprove with his effort
