On the eve of the the President's "New Way Forward" speech to the public, the latest poll numbers don't look good for Bush. A Gallup poll published today by USA Today shows that 61 percent of Americans oppose troop increases in Iraq. Even worse for Bush, those who approve of the President's handling of the war has dropped to a new low: 26 percent.
We have no idea how these numbers stack up in Oklahoma, which is one of the reddest of the so-called Red States. But if these trends continue, Oklahoma might be a little less red and a lot more purple.
