For Whom The Poll Tolls

A truly awful heading. Good.

Bush continues slippety-slipping downhill in the polls. For example:

Despite months of presidential effort, the nationwide poll found the public is not rallying toward Mr. Bush's vision of a new Social Security that would allow younger workers to put part of their payroll taxes into private investment accounts. Two-thirds said they were uneasy about Mr. Bush's ability to make sound decisions on Social Security. Only 25 percent said they approved of the way Mr. Bush was handling Social Security, down slightly from what the poll found in March.

It can be lonely at the top...

Or consider this one:

Moreover, only 37 percent said they approved of Mr. Bush's handling of the situation in Iraq, down from 45 percent in February. A strong majority of Americans now say the effort by the United States to bring stability and order to Iraq is going badly - 60 percent, up from 47 percent in February.

What is there to say about this that I haven't already said? Maybe it's worth pointing out that this guy supposedly won an election only six months ago.
