Bush addressed reporters Thursday morning.
WASHINGTON (CNN) - President Bush's approval rating has gone up slightly since his all-time low in June, according to a new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Poll released Thursday.
Bush's approval rating in the latest poll was 36 percent, an increase from 32 percent in June. But CNN Polling Director Keating Holland explained that the improvement is entirely due to Republicans turning around and deciding to stand by their president.
"The gain in Bush's approval is due entirely to Republicans coming home," Holland said. "There was no change in the approval rating among Democrats or Independents between this poll and the last one, but Bush's approval rating went up 16 points among Republicans since June."
The poll is based interviews with 1,029 adults, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percent.
