POLL: USA Today/Gallup Bush/Libby


Additional results from the most recent Gallup/USA Today national survey (USA Today story, results; Gallup Bush analysis, Libby analysis) of 1,014 adults (conducted 7/6 through 7/8) finds:

  • 29% approve of the way George Bush is handling his job as president -- "a new low;" 66% disapprove.
  • When asked to choose, 66% think Bush "should not have intervened at all" on Lewis "Scooter" Libby's behalf; 13% think he "was right to commute Libby's sentence;" 6% think Bush should have granted Libby a full pardon.
  • Opinions of Bush's recent actions [regarding Scooter Libby] are generally similar regardless of how much attention people are paying to the case.

Andrew:

Yet another poll that shows the Libby commutation to be highly unpopular. When was the last time Bush did something we the people liked?

Six percent of Americans thought Libby should have received a full pardon? Wow! I didn't realize there were that many administration cronies and Washington elitists in this country.
