Support for Bush Iraq Policy Tumbles Even Further

"How Low Can He Go?", our post asked about President Bush's poll numbers on April 21st. Lower and lower, apparently, according to a new CNN/USA Today/Gallup Poll on Bush's Iraq policy, conducted April 29th-May 1st. The percentage of Americans who disapprove of "the way George Bush is handling the situation in Iraq" increased one point over the previous CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll to 55. Those who think "it was not worth going to war in Iraq"? Now 57 percent, up 4 percent from the previous poll. How about those who think the war in Iraq is going "moderately badly or very badly"? Now 56 percent, up a whopping 11 percent over the 45 percent who chose these two options in the previous poll.
