President Bush's approval rating plummeted due to various failures and controversies.

President Bush's presidency came to a turbulent end as his approval rating fell drastically. One of the key reasons for this decline was his handling of the Persian Gulf War. Despite achieving military success, the war left many Americans disillusioned with the outcome and the cost of both human lives and taxpayer dollars.

Furthermore, President Bush's decision to send US troops to Panama in a controversial invasion also contributed to his dwindling popularity. The operation was met with criticism both domestically and internationally, with many questioning the necessity and motives behind the intervention.

The devastating Oklahoma City bombing further tarnished President Bush's legacy. The tragic event, which claimed the lives of 168 people, exposed the vulnerabilities in the country's national security and raised concerns about the effectiveness of the administration's counterterrorism efforts.

Additionally, President Bush's broken promise not to raise taxes became a major point of contention during his presidency. The tax hike, aimed at addressing the country's growing deficit, was viewed as a betrayal by many voters and contributed to a sense of disillusionment with the administration's economic policies.

As a result of these failures and controversies, the economy began to slow down towards the end of President Bush's term. The combination of economic hardship, rising unemployment, and a general sense of uncertainty further eroded public confidence in his leadership.

Despite his initial popularity and success in foreign policy, President Bush's legacy was ultimately overshadowed by these missteps and shortcomings. The accumulation of these challenges ultimately led to his decline in approval rating and ultimately, the end of his presidency.
