The Journal observes:   

"AMERICANS’ SUPPORT of President Bush’s handling of the Iraq war has declined to its lowest level since March 2003, when Harris Interactive began measuring U.S. attitudes on the issue. The latest poll of 2,322 Americans shows only 37% approve of the job Bush is doing. Ahead of the Iraq war, a series of Harris surveys asked if people were "confident Bush would make the right decision regarding an attack on Iraq." Since March 2003, Harris has asked, "Overall, how would you rate the job Bush has done in handling the issue of Iraq?" This chart tracks positive and negative responses to the questions since September 2002."

The complete results of the poll can be found here [3].
