Ticket to Ride

The Wednesday night polls released by NBC and the Wall Street Journal are impressive in their broad denunciation of the Bush presidency.

NBC/WSJ has Bush at all-time lows across the Board:

  • Overall: 38%
  • Economy: 34%
  • Foreign policy: 35%
  • Terrorism: 39%
  • Iraq: 32%
If this isn't a horse the Democrats can ride then I can't imagine a better opportunity to seize the initiative on everything...Iraq, economy, environment, security, taxes, whatever. If the Dems screw this pooch then there is no hope.

We are not talking about a weekly dip here. This is a trend and I can imagine it getting worse for Bush. These things kind of have a momentum that is virtually impossible to stop. It's the snowball effect.
The following indicates a major paradigm shift in the thinking of the American people.

Fifty-seven percent believe he deliberately misled people to make the case for war, compared with 35 percent who say he gave the most accurate information he had. In addition, 58 percent are less confident the war will come to a successful conclusion, and 57 percent say the United States should reduce the number of U.S. troops there.
I can seriously see the word "impeach" becoming something you begin to see in the daily MSM narrative. Whatever "political capital" Dubya thought he earned in the last election has been squandered two fold. It's taken way too long for the American people to wake up but they appear to awake now. Jolted awake is more like it.
