Polls Indicate A Drop

Polls indicate a drop for Bush's job approval

Two national polls are showing some slippage in President Bush's job approval ratings. A CNN USA Today-Gallup poll released yesterday shows that Bush's approval slipped from 52 percent among those surveyed to 45 percent in recent days.

CBS News numbers released earlier in the week had Bush's approval dipping six points to 43 percent among those polled. The numbers indicate the drops come among men and others in the president's core support groups.

The polls come after Congress and the president made a controversial intervention in the case of Terri Schiavo, a brain-damaged Florida woman.

The drop also comes during Bush's push to overhaul Social Security -- and when gas prices are on the rise.
