You may have recently seen the CNN poll showing that Dubya had gotten an amazing boost in popularity, up to 57% favorable, after the Iraqi "elections" this month. That's so great for the preznit, eh?

Not so fast. The Left Coaster was all over that like white on rice. It turns out they published a poll that had 9% more Republicans than democrats. No... that's not a typo.

CNN/USA Today/Gallup Poll
February 4-6, 2005
Bush Approval/Disapproval 57%-40%

Republicans: 378 (37%)
Independents: 353 (35%)
Democrats: 279 (28%)

He still doesn't even have half the country behind his agenda. Don't drink the Kool Aid, folks.
