Today, the Mustel Research Group Ltd. released the results of their latest provincial politics poll showing "support for the BC Liberals has remained strong over the summer" at 48 percent (down six points since May), with the New Democrats stuck at 37 percent. But Opposition leader Carole James's approval rating has dropped five points to 41 percent - six point below Premier Gordon Campbell. Although, in fairness, Ms. James's disapproval rating is still lower than the premier's - 26 versus 40 percent. Meanwhile, in unrelated news, the latest poll from The Gallup Organization says American president George W. Bush's approval rating is at 42 percent.
