The disapproves have it!

53% disapprove of the job Bush is doing as President, per the latest NY Times/CBS poll.

52% disapprove of his handling of foreign policy. 59% disapprove of his handling of the economy, and of Iraq1

48% disapprove of his response to the needs of people affected by Katrina. And 61% think Bush has different priorities for the country than they do.

The numbers are here. The article is here.

Taken together, the numbers suggest that a public that has long seen Mr. Bush as a determined leader, whether it agreed with him or not, has growing doubts about his capacity to deal with pressing problems. More than 6 in 10 said they were uneasy about his ability to make the right decisions about the war in Iraq, and half expressed similar unease about his ability to deal with the problems of the storm's victims.
