The Fear Card isn't what it used to be
As I reported yesterday the latest Newsweek poll showed that only one in four Americans approve of the job George W. Bush is doing. Perhaps the most disturbing number for Bush and the Republicans was that their trump card is not working as only 43% approve of Bush's handling terrorism. Today's Gallup Poll paints an even bleaker picture. After six and a half years of the Bush administration and six years of total Republican control only 29% think the US is winning the "War on Terror". While 65% of Americans see Afghanistan as a part of the WOT only 43% see Iraq as a part of it. That explains why a majority now oppose the occupation.
