New York Times/CBS poll
“The latest poll was conducted by telephone June 10 through Wednesday with 1,111 adults and has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points.”

Respondents who approved of how Bush is handling…
His job…42%
His Foreign policy…39%
The economy…39%
Campaign against terrorism…52%
Social Security…25%

And those who represent us in Congress fare much worse.

33% approve of the way Congress is handling its job.
While only 19% think that Congress shares their priorities for the country.

Some other results…

51% said we should have stayed out of Iraq.

60% say that the war in Iraq is going badly.

33% say the country is on “The right track”, while 61% say the opposite.

But, as refreshing as it is to see that people are actually questioning this administration, it’s still only a poll. And as a nation we are far more complex than these simple question and answers would indicate.
