Democrats Misfiring, So Far

The latest poll data collected at Real Clear Politics indicate that President Bush has lost no more than a point or two off his approval rating in the last couple of weeks. Given the intensity of the Democrats’ attacks during that time on “missing WMD’s” and other issues, and the amount of news coverage given to those attacks, this is encouraging. On the other hand, public opinion–consisting mostly, as it does, of the opinions of people who don’t follow the news–lags the news cycle significantly, so it is too early to conclude that the Democrats’ attacks are having no effect.
