Still In Pony Land

From Holden:

There’s a new Quinnipiac Poll out.

American voters disapprove 53 – 39 percent of the job President George W. Bush is doing. Approval ratings on specific areas are:

Disapprove 54 – 40 percent of his handling of the overseas war on terror;

Approve 53 – 42 percent of his policies to prevent terrorism in the U.S.

By a 48 – 39 percent margin, American voters would like the Democrats to take control of Congress in the November elections.

If a candidate for Congress supports President Bush, 21 percent say they are more likely to vote for that candidate, while 38 percent say they are less likely and 41 percent say it won’t make a difference.

American voters oppose the war in Iraq 53 – 43 percent and 36 percent of all voters feel strongly enough to vote against a political candidate just on that issue. This includes 62 percent of Democrats and 12 percent of Republicans.
