Conducted over the weekend, the latest CNN/Gallup/USA Today poll shows George Bush’s poll numbers continuing their precipitous slide toward infamy.
Asked how the prez is handling his job as leader of the free world, 40% approved of his performance while 58% said he sucks. OK, not in so many words, but that’s what they meant. Here are all the other ways respondents said Bush is doing a suck-ass job (all disapproval ratings): economy 63%, foreign affais 58%, Iraq 67%, Katrina 57%.
Then the poll gets personal. About whether Bush is honest and trustworthy, 47% said yes, 50% said no. Asked if he is a strong and decisive leader, 49% said yes and 51% said no (note: no No Opinions — decisive Americans!). Asked whether Bush “cares about people like you,” 56% said nope to 46% who said yup.
In other views, 81% said they want to see an independent panel investigate the Katrina mess and 56% said Bush was only out to help the hurricane victims for political reasons. Regarding Iraq, 56% said we shouldn’t have gone in, but 60% say the Senate should confirm John Roberts as Chief Wingnut of the Supreme Court.
