Most Americans Oppose Chimpy’s Veto

A new poll just released by CNN [pdf].

As you may know, President Bush vetoed a bill passed by Congress that would have provided additional funds for the war in Iraq and would have set a specific date for the withdrawal of all U.S. troops from that country. Do you approve or disapprove of Bush’s decision to veto that bill?

Approve 44%
Disapprove 54%
No opinion 2%

One proposal would provide additional funds for U.S. troops in Iraq and would require the U.S. to start withdrawing all its troops from Iraq by a specific date. Would you favor or oppose this bill?

Favor 57%
Oppose 41%
No opinion 2%

Some proposals would provide additional funds for troops in Iraq and set benchmarks that the Iraqi government must meet to show that progress is being made in Iraq, but would not set a date for troop withdrawal. Would you favor or oppose this bill?

Favor 61%
Oppose 36%
No opinion 3%

As you may know, Congress passed a bill in 2002 that gave President Bush the authority to conduct military actions in Iraq. Would you favor or oppose a bill that would revoke that bill and would require Bush to seek new authorization from Congress to continue the war in Iraq?

Favor 50%
Oppose 47%
No opinion 2%

Who do you think should be primarily responsible for setting U.S. policy in Iraq, Congress or the President?

Congress 47%
President 36%
Both equally (vol.) 14%
Neither (vol.) 2%
No opinion 1%

    Wow. That really is shocking, if you think about it. The public absolutely no longer trusts Chimpy to run foreign policy. So all of that work they did on the Pelosi=traitor meme re Syria obviously went over like a lead balloon.
    Before long, he’s going to need Congressional approval to scratch his own nutsack. Well, probably not, but you can see where I might hope so.
