Bush Weak With Swingers

LA Times: Key Voters Are Less Positive on Bush Than Most, Poll Finds:

"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.

Overall, potential swing voters in the key states gave Bush slightly lower job approval ratings than Americans in general did. While 44% of those swing voters approved of Bush's job performance, 48% of the full American public gave him positive ratings.

On Iraq, just 30% of the potential swing voters in battleground states said they approved of how Bush was handling the situation, while 40% of the nation at large approved.

Like the public at large, these voters named Iraq as the most important problem facing the country, followed by the economy.

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.

'In general, they're more pessimistic about everything, and that's not good news for Bush,' said Kathleen Hall Jamieson, director of the survey."
