A Gallup poll released this week stated that 37% of respondents approve of President Bush' handling of the economy. Now, listen; there are myriad issues that I disapprove of President Bush' handling (Immigration, gay marriage, ...), but I don't understand how any objective observer can say that his handling of the economy is subpar. The economy is booming, and has been booming since the dive bomb after 9/11. Unemployment keeps decreasing, the DOW has been hovering near an all-time high. So, considering that the majority of indicators all point to a strong economy, why is this figure so low?
Am I missing something?
