CLINTON'S RATING CONTINUES TO SLIDE
President Clinton's approval rating among Americans has fallen again, continuing a six-month slide, according to a survey released yesterday.
The poll by Louis Harris and Associates found that only 40 percent of adults surveyed gave the president an "excellent" or "pretty good" approval rating, while 59 percent thought his job performance was "fair" or ''poor."
The Harris group noted Clinton's approval rating is sliding despite an improvement in the economy.
"In the past, the state of the economy has usually been the single most important factor in helping or harming other presidents' standings," pollster Humphrey Taylor said in releasing the results.
