Polls trending in new direction

Presidential approval is inching up past 40 percent: 43% in Rasmussen, 42% in CNN and USA Today. This might reflect Lebanon, the foiled British attack, and/or the Lieberman race. Note also the generic Dem/GOP congressional difference is down to 2%! It had been in the low teens.

Do NOT expect a raft of stories in the media about any Bush/GOP turnaround.
