Based on the current AP-Ipsos poll, even Bush's supporters must agree that he's not getting the job done, and citizens are not happy with the direction of our country (yes, even liberals are part of the USA).

Results of Poll on Public Attitude on Bush By The Associated Press
Fri Feb 10, 4:35 AM ET



The Associated Press-Ipsos poll on public attitudes about President Bush and Congress, conducted Feb. 6-8, is based on telephone interviews with 1,000 adults from all states except Alaska and Hawaii.

Results were weighted to represent the population by demographic factors such as age, sex, region, race and income.

No more than one time in 20 should chance variations in the sample cause the results to vary by more than plus or minus 3 percentage points from the answers that would be obtained if all Americans were polled.

There are other sources of potential error in polls, including the wording and order of questions. Results may not total 100 percent because of rounding. An X signifies less than 1 percent.

IMO, Bush failed when he went to war with the wrong country. All down hill from there. 'Nuff said.

I am really interested to know who exactly they poll. I have never been polled, neither has anyone that I know. How about you?

Why is Steve biased for stating his opinion, but the conservatives aren't biased when they state theirs?

I know this poll is in some way false. In January Bush's approval rating went back over 50%.

Different people were polled. Why don't you assume his approval rating is false?

I always assume that approval ratings a false. Frankly I really don't care how everyone else thinks that the President is doing. I only worry about how I feel he is doing.

I guess you are calling the majority of American morons as well because HE WAS RE-ELECTED. The majority does not side with you, moron. Get over it. Your party leader in the Senate was defeated as well. That's how terrible your party truly is!

Parties fall in and out of favor all the time. Just because your party is in power now dosn't mean it's going to stay that way. I wonder if you will be so brutally honest with your own party when it's on the outside looking in?

It was a poll of Steven and all the rest of his San Francisco cronies like the one above. "San Francisco Treat", how gay does that post sound.

Is that so? How is it then that two different polling agencies can come up with drastically different results? I mean, if it is based on Scientific Methods, they should at least be close, no?

what makes you think i am a "party" guy like you are? can't i just be someone who doesn't like bush?
let's see, a lot has happened since he was reelected, no? perhaps people can change their opinions. are you going to babble on about "political capital" next?

also, i will call people morons if they voted for bushie for some of the reasons i have heard people voted for him. what sort of trump card did you think you were throwing down by saying "are you calling americans morons"? moronic is moronic,...uh... moron.

They are asking different people. Have you ever studied polling? It depends on how the questions are phrased and who you ask and when you ask. You can get different results if you do the same poll every six months.
