Bush: Job Ratings Who are these people

I have noted that Bush's approval rating is about what radical far right parties get in Europe.

Here is Bush's current approval:

Bush: Job Ratings


But by far the most notable result was the success of the far-right parties. Heinz-Christian Strache's Freedom Party won 18.2 percent of the vote, a gain of more than 7 percentage points. The Alliance for Austria's Future - led by Jörg Haider, the longtime head of the Freedom Party, who broke away and formed the new party in 2005 - more than doubled its result in the last vote two years ago to 9.8 percent.

I would argue that these are essentially the same people.  That 25% of a modern western democratic state exists on the far right expressing views that don't fit in the 21st Century, views that can only lead to war and destruction.

Bush is now down to these nut cases and these nut cases alone.
