BUSH AND KATRINA….In comments, Ben P notes that George Bush’s approval ratings for his handling of Hurricane Katrina have fallen substantially since last week. These results are from Survey USA’s 3-day tracking poll:

Wednesday: 48% approval
Thursday: 46% approval
Friday: 40% approval
Saturday: 41% approval
Sunday: 38% approval

Will “Operation Blame the Locals” prop these numbers up or just make things worse? Stay tuned.
