The Spin Has Turned Against Bush
Reporting on a poll that shows a majority of respondents believe there are serious ethical problems in the White House, Richard Morin and Claudia Deane of the Washington Post wrote:
Nearly half -- 47 percent -- believe that senior White House adviser Karl Rove did something wrong in connection with the case, including nearly a fifth who believe that Rove acted illegally. A smaller but still significant proportion -- 41 percent -- believe Cheney did something wrong, while 44 percent believe he did not.Not so long ago, they'd have emphasized the proportion who don't believe Cheney did anything wrong. It's especially interesting that they call 41 percent "significant" given that the proportion who believe he didn't do something wrong is higher.
