"As US troops endured a deadly week in Iraq, 61 percent of Americans polled say they disapprove of the way President George W. Bush is handling the war in Iraq, according to a new Newsweek poll. Thirty four percent say they approve. This is Bush's lowest rating on Iraq and the first time it has dropped below 40 percent in the Newsweek poll. ... Meanwhile, Bush’s approval ratings have dropped to 42 percent."
That 61% represents a 7% drop in the last month.
