NEW YORK (Reuters) - President Bush's approval rating has dropped to 57 percent from 73 percent since April as voters soured on his handling of the economy, a poll published on Wednesday showed.

The Quinnipiac University survey revealed that nearly twice as many American voters were more concerned about the sagging economy than about the possibility of terrorist attacks in the United States.


Forty-five percent of voters polled approved of Republican Bush's handling of the economy and 50 percent disapproved. Two-thirds described the economy as "not so good" or "poor."

An April 16 survey by the same pollster showed Bush with an overall approval rating of 73 percent compared with 57 percent in its June 4 to 9 poll of 865 registered voters nationwide. It said the poll's margin of error was plus or minus 3.3 percent.

Just wait until Congress gets its probe of the whole WMD mess fired up. These numbers have a long way to fall...and they will. There is light at the end of this dark tunnel.......
