That’s the news for president Bush from the latest Gallup poll. Money quote:

A 53% majority say they trust what Bush says less than they trusted previous presidents while they were in office. In a specific comparison with President Clinton, those surveyed by 48% – 36% say they trust Bush less.

People aren’t fools. When a president says “We do not torture,” and the evidence is overwhelming that we do, and have done, repeatedly, then your credibility suffers. The president has to put this issue behind him – soon. (Hat tip: Mike.)
