70% Disapprove of Bush’s Handling of War
Your support matters…
Negative assessments of the war in Iraq — the central issue in last month’s midterm election — continue to hold down President Bush’s job approval ratings and could cast a pall on the final two years of his presidency.
In a new Post-ABC News poll, seven in 10 Americans disapprove of the way the president is handling the situation in Iraq — the highest percentage since the March 2003 invasion. Six in 10 say the war was not worth fighting.
While both gauges on the war have been negative since late 2004, Bush’s approval rating on Iraq has deteriorated further since early October, likely weakened by recent high-profile criticisms of the administration’s Iraq policy.
