Update on Polling

Ruy Teixeira has finally delivered himself of an opinion on recent polling of El Presidente's performance ratings ... especially the recent Pew Research Center poll which gives Bush the worst approval rating of his presidency, and Teixeira makes big eyes at the terrific negative swing in opinions about Bush's handling of the "war on terror" ... "Bush's approval rating on Iraq is down to 40 percent with 53 percent disapproval. That's a 35 point swing from the Iraq rating Bush received in January in the same poll (59/37)."

Teixeira also takes an impatient swipe at John Kerry's policy statements of late, implying that Bush's bad poll numbers alone won't be enough to unseat him. We need a strong Democratic candidate with a clear and compelling vision running against him.
