POLL: The Second Term Free Fall

The latest CBS News poll puts President Bush’s job approval at 34 percent — an all-time low. Vice President Cheney is doing even worse. Only 18 percent of the public approves of the way he is doing his job.

The American public has a dismal assessment of Bush’s policies across the board:

30 percent approve of Bush’s handling of the war in Iraq — an all-time low.

27 percent approve of Bush’s energy policy.


32 percent approve of Bush’s handling of the economy.

5 percent of Americans are pleased with the way the rebuilding of the Gulf Coast is going.

Today, White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan said, “Our focus is on the important priorities of the American people.” Looks like the American people disagree.
