New NYT/CBS News Poll

“The number of Americans who approve of Mr. Bush’s handling of the campaign terrorism dropped to 46 percent from 54 percent over the past two weeks, suggesting that the president had failed to gain any political lift from an orchestrated set of ceremonies marking the fifth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.” New York Times/CBS News poll 10/10/06

The reassuring thing to be glimpsed beneath the numbers in the just-released NYT/CBS news poll to be found here (registration required) is that maybe – just maybe – people who have settled for the “form” of ceremonies and empty rhetoric are beginning to want the “substance” of meaningful policy and action.
