POLL: Newsweek National Survey


The latest Newsweek/Princeton Survey Research Associates International poll released over the weekend (story, results, press release) finds President Bush's job approval "remains at its all-time low."

Other key findings:

  • 70% of Americans disapprove of the way Bush is handling the situation in Iraq.
  • 46% of Americans think Democrats should try to block "the additional funding needed to pay for the additional troops Bush wants," while the same percent think Democrats should not try to block it.
  • In three hypothetical presidential match-ups, Sen. John McCain runs a few points behind Sens. Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and former Sen. John Edwards, although the margins are not statistically significant.

Phillip:

I just want to point out that the John Edwards 48% to 43% lead over John McCain is statistically significant since it is beyond the poll's margin of error. John Edwards is also the only Democratic candidate to lead both McCain and Guiliani. With Edwards leading most polls in Iowa, it appears Edwards is the new front runner!
