Bush in the Polls: Blood vs. Money

By Richard S. Dunham

I have to admit I've been surprised at recent polls showing President Bush at the lowest ebb of his Presidency. Now, I'm a poll junkie, which means I know that polls are just snapshots in time and are often affected by the bad-news headline of the day. Still, the President's 51% job-approval rating in the Gallup Poll released Nov. 14 and his almost-identical 50% rating in a concurrent CBS News Poll were unexpected to those of us who thought the improving economy would help George W. Bush recover from his dip in the polls that started as soon as those Navy sailors unfurled the infamous "Mission Accomplished" banner on the USS Abraham Lincoln in May.
