Is anyone else watching this “presidential news conference?” The president is getting killed by reporters. Did they switch the seating chart on him? I think he’s wearing make up.
Same old same old. But people are buying it less and less.
Support for Bush’s proposal to add private accounts to the Social Security dropped to 45 percent from 56 percent in mid-March, according the latest Washington Post-ABC News poll published on Tuesday.
Fifty-one percent now oppose the accounts, up from 41 percent in March.
Bush’s overall job approval rating was 47 percent, matching his all-time low in Washington Post-ABC News polls, while half disapproved of his performance.
The president’s ratings on other major issues were at or near new lows, the poll found. Less than half of respondents supported Bush’s handling of the economy, energy policy and Iraq.
