Gallup Poll Shows Bush At New Low

Highlights from the results:

Growing dissatisfaction with the war in Iraq has driven President Bush’s approval rating to a new low of 36 percent, according to a CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll released Monday.

Only 38 percent said they believe the nearly 3-year-old war was going well for the United States, down from 46 percent in January, while 60 percent said they believed the war was going poorly.

Nearly half of those polled said they believe Democrats would do a better job of managing the war — even though only a quarter of them said the opposition party has a clear plan for resolving the situation.

Democrats drew the support of 55 percent of the registered voters questioned, while 39 percent said they would be voting Republican in the fall.

The latest poll found 51 percent of Americans believed the administration deliberately misled the public about whether Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, while 46 percent disagreed.
