"The survey tracked down 832 people in that group as part of a larger poll of 8,314 American adults, reached by phone from May 1 to May 31. The margin of sampling error was 3% for the smaller group and 1% for the public at large.

Just 30% of potential swing voters in the battleground states approved of Bush's handling of the economy, while 41% of the public at large approved.
