Poll Shows Drop in Bush's Job Approval

"WASHINGTON - The public's confidence in President Bush's job performance and the nation's direction has slipped in the opening weeks of his second term, particularly among people 50 and older, according to an Associated Press poll.

Adults were evenly divided on Bush's job performance in January, but now 54 percent disapprove and 45 percent approve. The number who think the country is headed down the wrong track increased from 51 percent to 58 percent in the past month."
It's interesting to note that while public optimism on the situation in Iraq has increased as a result of the recent elections, that hasn't translated to increased support for the president or his handling of Iraq.
