The National Journal’s Hotline has published the numbers of its new poll conducted with Westhill of 800 registered voters. In the poll, President Bush has a 48 percent approval rating, with 44 percent disapproving.
The GOP receives a 68 percent approval rating for its handling of Social Security, with 21 percent disapproving. Most striking, Democrats receive 5 percent approval for their handling, with a full 93 percent disapproving. However, the Democrats sill edge Bush/GOP on who they trust more to handle the issue, 38 to 35 percent.
In a possible 2004 White House rematch, President Bush still bests John Kerry 45 to 43 percent. Bush would also beat Al gore 47 to 42 percent.
A perfect illustration of how screwy polls are or how dingy the American people can be sometimes, or both.
