Approval Ratings for President and Congressional Leaders Continue to Drop, According to Latest Harris Poll The War Jumps to the Top of the List as the Most Important Issue for the

Government to Address



    ROCHESTER, N.Y., Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- President Bush's job approval
 ratings are at their lowest point of his presidency as only 40 percent of U.S.
 adults have a favorable opinion of his job performance, while 58 percent have
 a negative opinion. This is a decline from just two months ago in June when
 the president's ratings were 45 percent positive and 55 percent negative. Much
 of this decline can be tied to the public's opinion on important issues. The
 war has climbed to the top of the most important issues list and the economy
 is now the second most important issue.
     These are some of the results of a new Harris Poll of 1,217 U.S. adults
 surveyed by telephone by Harris Interactive(R) between August 9 and 16, 2005.
 
     Ratings of Other Cabinet Members
     The Harris Poll(R) also examined the ratings of others in the Bush
 administration and with one exception; their ratings have also dropped in the
 past two months. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is the only cabinet
 member who has seen a rise in her ratings. She is now at 57 percent positive
 and 37 percent negative, a rise from June when she was at 52 percent positive
 and 41 percent negative. Her ratings clearly top those of the political
 figures measured.
     Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has a 40 percent positive, 58 percent
 negative rating while Vice President Dick Cheney has a 35 percent positive, 60
 percent negative rating.
 
     Congress and Congressional Leaders
     Looking at the parties in Congress, both Republicans and Democrats see
 drops in their ratings, with the Republicans taking the larger fall. Slightly
 under one-third (31%) of adults give a positive rating to Democrats in
 Congress and 65 percent give them a negative rating, down from their 33
 percent positive, 61 percent negative ratings in June. Currently, Republicans
 fare only slightly better with a 32 percent positive and a 64 percent negative
 rating, down from a 37 percent positive and a 58 percent negative rating in
 June.
     In looking at the ratings of individual leaders in Congress, they hold
 pretty steady from June. Both Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist and House
 Majority Leader Tom DeLay have positive ratings of 28 percent, but more than
 half of adults (54%) give a negative rating to DeLay as compared to the 49
 percent negative rating for Frist. The Speaker of the House, Dennis Hastert,
 has a 26 percent positive rating and 46 percent negative rating, and Senate
 Minority Leader Harry Reid is at 24 percent positive and 47 percent negative.
 
     Right Direction or Wrong Track
     As the attitudes toward the president, his cabinet and Congress continue
 to decline, Americans are also less satisfied with the way things are going in
 the country now as compared to in June. A majority (59%) of adults say things
 in the country have gotten pretty seriously off on the wrong track and 37
 percent believe things are moving in the right direction. In June, those
 numbers were 38 percent who said things were moving in the right direction and
 55 percent who said things had headed off on the wrong track.
 
     The War is the Most Important Issue
     The main reason why these percentages may be as low as they are probably
 has to do with the most important issues Americans want to see addressed. The
 war has taken a large jump as 41 percent say that it is the most important
 issue for the government to address, up from 24 percent in June. Following the
 war, the economy remains near the top of the list as 19 percent believe it is
 the most important issue. We also see that the rising gas prices has moved to
 the top five issues of importance as 10 percent of adults think it is the most
 important issue for the government to address.
     The fact that neither the war nor the economy may be perceived as going
 well and people are constantly being reminded of the gas prices every time
 they fill their tanks has perhaps left the public looking for someone to
 blame. Right now, it looks like they may be placing that blame on the
 president, members of his administration and Congress.

     Methodology
     The Harris Poll(R) was conducted by telephone within the United States
 between August 9 and 16, 2005 among a nationwide cross section of 1,217 adults
 (aged 18 and over). Figures for age, sex, race, education, number of adults,
 number of voice/telephone lines in the household, region and size of place
 were weighted where necessary to align them with their actual proportions in
 the population.
     In theory, with a probability sample of this size, one can say with 95
 percent certainty that the results have a sampling error of plus or minus 3
 percentage points of what they would be if the entire U.S. adult population
 had been polled with complete accuracy. Unfortunately, there are several other
 possible sources of error in all polls or surveys that are probably more
 serious than theoretical calculations of sampling error. They include refusals
 to be interviewed (nonresponse), question wording and question order,
 interviewer bias, weighting by demographic control data and screening (e.g.,
 for likely voters). It is impossible to quantify the errors that may result
 from these factors.
 
     These statements conform to the principles of disclosure of the National
 Council on Public Polls.
