I didn’t look to see how the op-ed pages tried to spin their own survey, but the data looks pretty bad for the gang in the White House.
Nearly half of Americans don’t trust President Bush to reform the nation’s health-care system, a new Wall Street Journal Online/Harris health-care poll found.
When asked much they trust the president to come up with good policies for improving and reforming the U.S. health-care system, 49% said “not at all,” while 16% said “not much,” according to the online survey of 2,482 U.S. adults. By comparison, 18% said they trust Mr. Bush “to some extent” and only 9% trust him “a great deal” on the issue. The survey was conducted Feb. 7-9.
Do they really think anyone is surprised that America doesn’t trust Bush any more. I think the real story is how anyone can trust this administration in any regard at all.
