US President George W Bush's approval rating has slipped to 35 per cent, down eight points since January, said a poll published on Wednesday by The Wall Street Journal.

The rating, however, is a point shy of his lowest rating of 34 per cent that was registered in November.

The ratings reflected a similar trend in how Americans felt about the direction their country is heading, with 65 per cent saying that it was the wrong one, up five per cent from March.

Only 27 per cent said that the US was going in the right direction, down four points since last month.

The war in Iraq still looms large for Americans, with 23 per cent considering it the most important issue their government should address, up two points from last month.

Immigration was the next most important issue on the government's agenda for 19 per cent of the 1,008 adults surveyed between April 7-10.

Health care and the economy took third and fourth place with 13 and 12 per cent respectively in the poll.
