  • 21% approves of the way Congress is handling its job; 64% disapprove.
  • Among 417 likely Democratic primary voters, 44% "would like to see the Democratic party nominate as its presidential candidate in 2008" Sen. Hillary Clinton; 27% say Sen. Barack Obama, former Sen. John Edwards 11%.
  • Among 266 likely Republican primary voters, 22% would like to see the Republican party nominate former Mayor Rudy Giuliani; 21% say former Gov. Mike Huckabee, former Gov. Mitt Romney 16%, Sen. John McCain and former Sen. Fred Thompson both 7%.

Tim MacKinnon:

It will be interesting to see if the dip shown in the CBS/NYT survey is a low outlier poll or if Bush's favorability is going to take a hit from his NIE/Iran threat nonsense
