Support for Bush Declines As Casualties Mount in Iraq

Public support for President Bush has dropped sharply amid growing
concerns about U.S. military casualties and doubts whether the war with
Iraq was worth fighting, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News

Bush's overall job approval rating dropped to 59 percent, down nine
points in the past 18 days. That decline exactly mirrored the slide in
public support for Bush's handling of the situation in Iraq, which now
stands at 58 percent.

And for the first time, slightly more than half the country -- 52
percent -- believes there has been an "unacceptable" level of U.S.
casualties in Iraq, up eight points in less than three weeks.
