According to Zogby and CNN polls (who listens to these anyways) Bush's approval ratings have started to climb again. Anything sustained above 48% is better than the last few presidents we have had. Now why aren't we hearing about this in the news?? When Bush's approval ratings were dropping to the 50% range it was big news, but now that it is going back up, CNN is quiet.

Oh yeah, the latest Gallop poll from Iraq sure will not help the dems...http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/news/archive/2003/10/13/national0129EDT0417.DTL

It was a quote from a Monty Python film. It was a insult from the French defenders to the English.
No offence meant.

So, whats the good news then?

What were the changes to the poll? You said it was wrong originally, so what changes did they make?

Bush aides expressed relief at several polls this week, including a Washington Post-ABC News poll released yesterday, that found the president's approval rating stabilizing after a steady drop since Iraqi President Saddam Hussein was ousted in mid-April. Bush's approval rating in the Post-ABC poll was 53 percent. That is statistically unchanged from the end of last month, and 5 percentage points down from mid-September <hr /></blockquote>


You said it went up.
It didnt.

I believe it was the CNN/Gallup poll that had him down to 50% and now up to 55%.

Are you going to address this.. <blockquote><font class="small">Quote eg8r:</font><hr> Oh yeah, the latest Gallop poll from Iraq sure will not help the dems...http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/news/archive/2003/10/13/national0129EDT0417.DTL

Data Reveal Inaccuracies in Portrayal of Iraqis

By Walter Pincus
Washington Post Staff Writer
Monday, September 29, 2003; Page A14


Top Bush administration officials in the past weeks have been citing a pair of public opinion polls to demonstrate that Iraqis have a positive view of the U.S. occupation. But an examination of those polls indicates Iraqis have a less enthusiastic view than the administration has portrayed

Another one.

In the survey, 34 percent described their morale as low, compared with 27 percent who described it as high and 37 percent who said it was average; 49 percent described their unit's morale as low, while 16 percent called it high.

In recent days, the Bush administration has launched a campaign to blame the news media for portraying the situation in Iraq in a negative light. Last week, Bush described the military spirit as high and said that life in Iraq is "a lot better than you probably think. Just ask people who have been there."

But Stars and Stripes raised questions about what those visiting dignitaries saw in Iraq. "Many soldiers -- including several officers -- allege that VIP visits from the Pentagon and Capitol Hill are only given hand-picked troops to meet with during their tours of Iraq," the newspaper said in its interview with Sanchez. "The phrase 'Dog and Pony Show' is usually used. Some troops even go so far as to say they've been ordered not to talk to VIPs because leaders are afraid of what they might say."

The newspaper also noted in that interview that its reporters were told that some soldiers who had complained of morale problems had faced disciplinary actions known as Article 15s, which can result in reprimand, extra duties and forfeiture of pay. Sanchez said he did not know of any such punishments, but he added that they would have been handled at a lower level.

Here is the CNN poll (http://www.cnn.com/2003/ALLPOLITICS/10/13/elec04.poll.bush/index.html) on Bush's approval ratings. Seems to be moving up.

As far as the poll of the Iraqi citizens...I am having trouble finding it again on the web. It appears that it was pulled down.

The link works.

Here is something that you almost certainly didnt hear.

Rumsfeld and Myers addressed troop morale after the Army said that at least 13 U.S. troops have committed suicide in Iraq, representing more than 10 percent of American noncombat deaths there, and that it had dispatched a suicide-prevention expert to assess the problem <hr /></blockquote>

When some kid shoots himself in the head they call it "a non-combitant gunshot wound".

At least they are doing something about it now instead of just denying it happens.

And still they [ the US] will not comprimise and let the UN take a more active roll. They wont let go of the power.

The problem is that UN wants total control over what is happening. That is not going to happen. If the UN cared they would have been bringing in more people instead of pulling them out.
