CNN/USA Today/Gallup: 75% Give Bush Thumbs Up

Will the president get a boost in approval rating?

An instant poll taken by CNN/USA Today/Gallup gave President Bush a 75% positive rating. CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer said more than 400 adults who watched the State of the Union address were surveyed in the poll.

When asked to rate the president’s speech, the poll broke down like this:

48% gave Bush a very positive rating
27% gave Bush a somewhat positive rating
23% gave Bush a negative rating

Although those numbers may not look remarkable on first glance, that’s actually a 75% positive rating for Bush when the top two categories are combined.

His approval rating in the most recent CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll was 43%.
