Bush Drops in National Poll (posted June 5, 2001)

President George Bush's approval rating has dropped eight percentage points to 55 percent over the last month, according to a new Washington Post/ABC News national survey. The poll, taken May 31 to June 3 with 1,004 randomly selected adults, has a margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points.

There were interesting differences in public views of how the two parties have handled various issues. According to the Post, "Bush still maintains a 7-point advantage over the Democrats on international affairs and taxes, while Democrats have double-digit advantages on patients' rights and Social Security, as well as energy and the environment." The two parties are even in terms of who is most trusted to handle the issue of education.
