Bush's Job Rating Reaches Record High

PRESIDENT Bush's approval rating hit a record high as Americans agreed that the coalition forces won the Gulf war, according to a recent Gallup survey. Of the 769 surveyed 89 percent gave President Bush a high job-performance rating and 65 percent said they were more likely to vote for him than a Democratic presidential nominee in the 1992 elections.

The military also received high marks from the public. Gulf allied forces commander Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf and Gen. Colin Powell, head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, received favorable ratings of 71 percent and 54 percent respectively.

Some 70 percent of those polled said the United States was spending the right amount or too little on defense, up from 55 percent of those polled in August.

The poll's margin of error is plus or minus 4 percent.
