Bush credibility takes hit

 From a new CBS News poll: [1]

"The Congressional hearings on what happened before Sept. 11 appear to  
have raised concerns about both the Bush administration's credibility  
and its overall performance, even on the issue on which the  
administration may be staking its re-election."

"The latest CBS News poll, conducted Tuesday through Thursday, shows  
declines in the president's approval ratings in a number of policy  
areas, but especially changes in the evaluation of the president's  
handling of terrorism."

"Six in ten Americans are following the hearings closely; 56 percent  
say the administration is cooperating with the panel. But what the  
administration is saying does not receives high marks: 59 percent say  
it is hiding something it knew before Sept. 11, and 11 percent even say  
it is lying. Only one in four think the administration is telling the  
entire truth."
