new poll: Americans slam Bush over Iraq

WASHINGTON, Aug 7

In one of the the lowest ratings for US President Mr George W Bush, 61 per cent of Americans have disapproved of his handling of the war in Iraq, a new opinion poll has revealed. Newsweek magazine, which conducted the poll, said yesterday that it was Mr Bush’s lowest approval on Iraq and the first below-40 per cent drop in his ratings. Only 34 per cent of those polled said they approved of Mr Bush’s handling of Iraq. While 50 per cent said the US was losing ground in its efforts to establish security and democracy in the country, only 40 per cent said US was making progress. A poll done by the magazine one month ago had shown that 41 per cent of Americans approved of Mr Bush’s handling of Iraq while 54 per cent did not.
