The public's view on President Bush's handling of the economy is slipping, says a poll that found only 36 percent of those surveyed approve of his economic performance and more than half -- 52 percent -- disapprove.
The CBS News poll also found six in 10 think the economy is in bad shape. That is the highest percentage in 10 years.
The poll found 70 percent of respondents believe the president is not paying enough attention to the economy. Even among Republicans, one-half felt Bush needs to pay more attention to the economy.
