Down on Bush (But Not in a Gannony Way)

From Holden:

The latest AP Poll, sure to be dismissed by Little Scottie if he is asked about it in the next gaggle.

President Bush loses backing from independents, women and older Americans when he changes the topic from terrorism and foreign policy to overhauling Social Security, an Associated Press poll found.

While a majority of Americans approve of Bush’s handling of terrorism and foreign policy, just over a third, 37 percent, like his approach to Social Security.


A majority of Americans, 56 percent, say they disapprove of Bush’s handling of Social Security. A similar number in a recent AP poll opposed the creation of personal accounts.

More than half of Americans, 55 percent, still have a general sense that the country is headed down the wrong track.


The public is about evenly split on Bush’s job performance overall, with 48 percent approving and 50 percent disapproving. Men were more likely than women to approve of Bush’s job performance.
