Okay, I know AOL polls are unscientific and most aol users are kind of...ummm, well, let's just say the best and the brightest are probably using some other domain. (Full disclosure: I'm on AOL.) But here's a poll that's ongoing tonight during Bush's press conference. Over 45,000 respondents so far.
59% rate Bush's overall performance as "poor." Only 18% rate "excellent."
75% oppose Bush's social security plan.
74% oppose Bush's energy plan; 40% say they don't understand it.
71% oppose Bush's handling of Iraq.
75% oppose his handling of the economy.
And this President is supposed to have a "mandate" of some kind? This President who squeaked by with 51% of the popular vote after widespread voting irregularities in Ohio and Florida?
