54% of Americans polled think Mr Bush is doing an overall crappy job as President according to a CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll. 60% say he is doing a badjob with the U.S economy, 67% say his scheming to privatize Social Security is wrongheaded. 60% disagree with how he is handling Iraq.

Maybe I'm to much of a thinker, but what is with this statement:
On a separate question asked of half the respondents, 48 percent said they favored the Democrats in the dispute and 40 percent favored the GOP.
How about giving us the question asked? Even in a short article it seems sensible- especially since odds are "On a separate question asked" uses more space than transparently stating the subject of the question...
George Mason University’s History News Network has found that eight in ten historians responding see the Bush presidency an overall failure.
Of 415 historians who expressed a view of President Bush’s administration to this point as a success or failure, 338 classified it as a failure and 77 as a success. (Moreover, it seems likely that at least eight of those who said it is a success were being sarcastic, since seven said Bush’s presidency is only the best since Clinton’s and one named Millard Fillmore.) Twelve percent of all the historians who responded rate the current presidency the worst in all of American history, not too far behind the 19 percent who see it at this point as an overall success.
I see the Bush presidency as a miserable failure, I feel the facts bear me out.
