The Word Unheard links to several debunkers of the latest WaPo poll, and I will add another note on these polls.

We have seen several polls that show, for example, a 45% approval rating for Bush, but only a 40% approval rating for the way he is handling the terrorists in Iraq. Liberal pundits trumpet the 40% number and claim widespread disapproval of our entry into Iraq. But they are missing those who disapprove of our handling in Iraq because they think we are not being aggressive enough. They like Bush, they support going into Iraq, and they want us to ignore the naysayers at home and go out and win the thing.
