Liking Him Despite Himself?

Poll numbers rarely fail to amaze and the latest Gallup results are no exception.

Most interesting is respondents’ reaction to the job W is doing when it comes to the war on terror.

Fifty-six percent of Americans disapprove of the way the President is handling the situation in Iraq (that 42% approve is amazing enough). Meanwhile, only 39% disapprove of the way W is handling the war on terror.

What does that tell you? Well, most people simply do not connect the two issues. Yet, making that connection was the cornerstone of the President’s recent years in office and his re-election bid.

No, we don’t believe you when it comes to the most critical decision of your term in office, but yes, you’ve got our vote.

Concentration is important!
