Yes, an expected post from a liberal, but I think this illustrates just how much the port controversy blindsided Bush. Sure, we can’t know if this number is true until we see other numbers come in the next few days, but this walks and talks a lot like post-Katrina numbers. Bush has got to be concerned.
(CBS) The latest CBS News poll finds President Bush’s approval rating has fallen to an all-time low of 34 percent, while pessimism about the Iraq war has risen to a new high.
Americans are also overwhelmingly opposed to the Bush-backed deal giving a Dubai-owned company operational control over six major U.S. ports. Seven in 10 Americans, including 58 percent of Republicans, say they’re opposed to the agreement.
I know I’ve heard from some of you about this already, but what are your thoughts on the port deal, given the new information that’s come out since the initial report?
