Poll find Bush is losing support across California (38% approval!)
Edited on Tue Apr-06-04 09:57 AM by mobuto
I don't think this will be a close one.
_________________________________________


A new poll shows President Bush's approval ratings in California have plummeted, even in the state's most GOP-dominated conservative areas.

With the Iraq war taking a difficult turn and questions raised at home about the administration's terrorism policy, the poll by the Survey and Policy Research Institute at San Jose State University released Monday puts Bush's state approval ratings at just 38 percent, while 50 percent disapprove.

That's a dramatic change from the start of the year, when 49 percent of Californians approved of the job the president was doing, and 40 percent disapproved.

Even more telling may be the downward shift in public opinion in the nation's most populous state regarding Bush's handling of the war on terror and the war in Iraq -- two areas that Republicans have touted as the president's strengths.

1. If it was one thing I guess the people would put up with him but....
Bush and Co seem to be into every thing and not making it better.From dirty air to war.

3. Still, we can't afford to ignore California
Given that California voted overwhelmingly for the Gropinator, I wouldn't take anything for granted.

4. I agree. But I also remember that a "real Democrat" candidate
beat out a "real Republican" candidate (Herr Ahnold was a "vanity candidate") by a 3 to 1 margin in votes.

(By "real", I mean "traditional")
