Gov. Blanco's Approval Rating in Free Fall

The fact that K Blanco is way over her head is being recognized.

The bottom has fallen out of Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco's poll numbers, with her approval rating tumbling sharply in the wake of the Hurricane Katrina crisis.

While President Bush's approval rating has fallen by two or three points in most polls, Survey USA found that Gov. Blanco's favorability rating has dropped by a whopping nine points among Louisianans, from 50 to 41 percent since the last survey in August.

Gov. Blanco's negative numbers have shot up by an even higher margin - 13 points. In August, 43 percent disapproved of the way she was doing her job. Now, 56 percent give her a thumbs down.

And rightly so.
