And It Begins...

CNN Poll: Iraqi Elections Give Bush Boost
The Iraqi elections that went "better than expected" produced a bump in President Bush's approval rating, according to the latest CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll.

Between January 14 and 16, 51 percent of survey participants expressed approval of Bush's performance as president. But 57 percent of the 1,010 respondents during the February 4 thru 6 poll stated that they approved of how the he does his job.
Bush's approval rating has jumped six percentage points in a three week period. My initial assumption that the successful Iraq elections would radically change Bush's approval ratings seems to be coming true. I have no doubt that his inauguration speech, his recent State of the Union, as well as his new SS plans have also helped raise this number. 57% is a very positive number, and I wouldn't be surprised at all to see it climb over the 60% mark within a month or two.

More interesting results from the poll:

• 55% said the United States did not make a mistake sending troops to Iraq, up from 47% last month.

• 53% said things are going very or moderately well in Iraq, compared with 40% last month.

• 64% said it is very or somewhat likely a democratic form of government will be established in Iraq, up from 47% last month.

• 10% said more U.S. troops are needed in Iraq, down from 24% who said that before the elections.

• 50% said they approved of how Bush is handling Iraq, up from 42% last month; 48% said they disapproved, down from 56% last month.
