A newly released poll by NBC and The Wall Street Journal reflects growing problems for the president and the Republican party.

Bush's approval rating dropped to 39%, an all time low for his presidency. The most striking polling showed that only 2% of Black Americans approve of George Bush. Tim Russert, of Meet the Press, said that this represents the lowest approval in the history of polling among African-Americans.

Other poll numbers spell out trouble for the GOP. 48% prefer that Democrats control Congress while only 39% prefer that Republicans maintain control of Congress.

65% of those polled believed that Tom DeLay was involved in illegal activity. 57% believed that the investigation into insider trading by Bill Frist indicates the possibility of wrongdoing.
