President’s Job Approval Rebounds

Rasmussen has President Bush’s job approval rating back at 52%, compared to 47% disapproval, suggesting that the media’s all-Abu Ghraib, all the time coverage may be having only a transitory political effect.
In other polling news, Fox reports the absolutely bizarre finding that 49% of Americans say that for them and their families, it “feels like the economy is getting worse.” (Thirty-one percent say “better”.) The biggest reason, cited by 37%: “no jobs.” Maybe reality really is optional. At a minimum, the Bush administration had better step up its promotion of the economy’s current sizzling performance. One would think that people would notice, but apparently not.
