I thought polls were supposed to sample prevailing sentiment.
And the newly trumpeted Bush approval poll does -- only among democrats,
and among "independents" which often means "democrat but embarrassed
to admit it."

From News Busters:

On the bottom of the PDF version of the poll (page 18) it says how many Democrats versus Republicans were contacted.

"Total Republicans" contacted: 272 unweighted and 289 weighted.

"Total Democrats" contacted: 409 unweighted and 381 weighted.

"Total Independents" contacted: 337 unweighted and 348 weighted.

Sheesh. The headline should be: Bush Loses Support at Huffington Post.
