Lower Confidence in Bush:

The public also doesn’t trust President Bush’s ability to handle Iraq, according to the same USA Today/Gallup Poll (see above) released yesterday. Only about one in four Americans believe he has a clear plan for the war. Only 25 percent of those polled think the President has a clear plan, marking the lowest percentage of his presidency. Gallup also notes that belief in a Democratic solution has hovered around 25 percent for the past year.
