More Bad Poll News on George W Bush and Iraq

Saw this on Olbermann last night. There's a new NBC/Wall Street Journal Poll out. (You can find the data here.) When asked:
In general, do you approve or disapprove of the job that George W. Bush is doing in handling the situation in Iraq?
Only 27% of those polled approved. A whopping 2/3 (66%) disapproved of how dubya's doing his job in Iraq.

And despite all of the propaganda, only 12% said think things have gotten better over there (49% said things have gotten worse, 37% said things are the same).

And here's a note to all those screeching about Senator Reid's "treasonous" statement that the war in Iraq is "lost". When asked:
Do you think the U.S. goal of achieving victory in Iraq is still possible, or not?
More than half (55%) agree with him. Does that make a majority of Americans traitors?

Indeed about the same percentage (56%) sided with the Democrats when asked:
When it comes to the debate on Iraq who do you agree with more: the Democrats in Congress, who say we should set a deadline for troop withdrawal from Iraq; OR, President Bush, who says we should NOT set a deadline for troop withdrawal from Iraq
Speaking of the man himself, do you think I need to add his overall approval ratings? Ok I think I will. (You can find the data here.) When asked:
In general, do you approve or disapprove of the job that George W. Bush is doing as president?"
Only 35% of those polled said they approved. 60% disapproved.

This is where I started. Olbermann reported last night about the poll in regards to the direction the nation is heading. When asked:
All in all, do you think things in the nation are generally headed in the right direction, or do you feel that things are off on the wrong track?"
Only 22% (that's barely more than 1 out of 5) think the country is headed in the right direction. 2/3, again, think it's headed in the wrong direction.
