Bush Polls

By  | 

A new poll finds Americans about evenly divided when asked if the country was better off under President Clinton than it is under President Bush.

The CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll found 49-percent say Republican Bush and 46-percent say Democrat Clinton. The difference is within the poll's margin of error.

Two-thirds of those surveyed say they have a favorable view of Bush, reflecting continued positive feelings about him personally. Bush's job approval rating is 62-percent.

A poll by Quinnipiac University finds Americans evenly divided on Bush's handling of the economy, but the public approves of Bush's handling of terrorism by a 2-1 margin.
