CNN Poll indicates Bush may be a drag on GOP come November
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Although President Bush has been campaigning for local
Republican candidates this week, he actually may hurt more than help his party
come November, according to results of a new CNN poll released Wednesday.

Fifty-seven percent of 1,014 adult Americans surveyed by Opinion Research
Corporation on behalf of CNN said they will be more likely to vote for a
candidate who opposes Bush, as compared to 37 percent who said they will likely
cast their ballots for candidates who support the president.

Asked about issues which may play a role in their vote, 50 percent of
poll respondents said they disapproved of how Bush is handling terrorism,
compared with 48 percent who approve.
