Poll Droppings

The Polls have bad news for Bush, et al., mostly due to a matter beyond anyone's control, oil prices.
Far and away the top reason for those saying it feels like the economy is getting worse is gas prices. Six in 10 cite rising gas prices, outdistancing other frequently mentioned reasons such as the lack of jobs (28 percent) and grocery prices (15 percent).

When read a list of factors that could play a part in assessing the economy, large majorities of Americans say the availability of good jobs (89 percent) and gas prices (83 percent) are either "extremely" or "very" important factors in deciding whether the economy is in good shape.
I find it interesting that Americans have so little understanding about matters like this. I get the feeling that if Yellowstone were to blow up, Democrats and the media would try to blame Bush for it.
