Response to Bring them on


I'd say his handlers are eyeing the opinion polls with growing alarm and have told him to start hamming it up again. As you've probably seen, the recent CNN/Gallup/USA Today poll on the question How are things going for the US in Iraq, now that the major fighting has ended? has gone in the space of a month from 70% to 56% thinking it's going very/moderately well.

There's a nice graph of Bush's personal ratings on the same site as well. He's still at 61%, which according to Gallup is still good for a president in his third year. Interestingly, Bush's term low so far is 51%, which occurred in the first week of September, 2001.

Don't say we haven't been warned.
