And the latest polls show...

A new AP-Ipsos poll reveals that the majority of Americans disapprove of how Bush is handling the war in Iraq (only 38% approve). For the first time since the question was included in public opinion polls, less than half of the American public (48%) still feels that Bush is honest. The overall approval rating for Bush's job performance? A tepid 42%. Six in ten respondents feel that this country is headed in the wrong direction. But when asked the question, "Do you feel that President Bush is a strong and likeable leader?" Over 60% of the poll takers said YES!!! Almost 2/3 of the poll takers think that Bush is a strong and likeable leader. They hate what he is doing in Iraq, they don't trust him, they aren't real impressed with his overall job performance, but strong and likeable? Oh yeah! What the hell?!?!

I've come to the conclusion that the problem is, many Americans don't understand poll questions and so they simply respond randomly.

I'll go you on further - over 75% of Americans are not very bright.

Wow, as an articulate, intelligent fella you must stick out like the proverbial, sore thumb.
