Bush Poll

By  | 

Questions about the country's direction have President Bush's poll numbers falling again.

An Associated Press-Ipsos poll shows only 28 percent of those surveyed say the nation is headed in the right direction , while nearly seven out of ten say it's on the wrong track.

It's more bad news for the president, whose job approval of 39 percent remains at the lowest level of his time in office.

Anxiety about Iraq, the economy and gas prices are dragging down the numbers. One Republican from California says he's angry that the country is "mired" in what he calls a "Middle Eastern adventure," which he says has taken the focus off the country.

On specific issues, just more than a third approve of Bush's handling of Iraq. Six in ten don't know whether the billions of dollars earmarked for hurricane recovery will be spent wisely.
