Growing Doubts

Not really suprising news I know, but for some reason it hasn't made it onto the right wing blogsphere.

WASHINGTON -- Americans have growing doubts about President Bush's honesty and his effectiveness, according to a poll taken at a time people are uneasy with the war in Iraq, uncertain about the economy and nervous about the terrorist threat.

Half of those in the poll taken by the Pew Research Center, 49 percent, said they believe the president is trustworthy, while almost as many, 46 percent said he is not. Bush was at 62 percent on this measure in a September 2003 Pew poll and at 56 percent in a Gallup poll in April. One of Bush's strong suits throughout his presidency has been the perception by a majority of people that he is honest.

The slide in trust in Bush comes at a time the White House is answering questions about top aide Karl Rove's involvement in the public leak of the identity of a CIA operative.

Well, there's no way he's going to get reelected with numbers like that!

Will he be standing for President at the next election?

Anyway...it's not about re-election. It's about Americans slowly realising Bush is paddling up shit creek with them on board.

No, it's about push polling and not much else. But that paddling? You're on board. Deal with it.
