President Bush has taken a major hit in poll numbers related to his performance dealing with homeland security and the war on terror. About 57% approve of the way W is handling these issues. Not bad, but a far cry from the 70% approval rating of a couple months ago. In the bigger picture, W’s overall approval rating hasn’t moved much and the race with Kerry is still within the margin of error.
So what do these poll numbers tell us? The same thing they always tell us. We are split down the middle and barring something unimaginable, the race will come down to a handful of voters in handful of states. And not many of those voters have not been following the commission hearings on C-Span.
