CBS Poll: Bush’s Numbers Head Higher

President Bush’s overall approval rating jumped 4 percent according to the latest CBS poll.

The President’s immigration policies are also polling well with voters:

62 percent favor his plan to station National Guard troops at the Mexican border.

61 percent approve of Mr. Bush’s proposal for a guest worker program to allow foreign workers to stay in the U.S. on a temporary basis and then return to their home country.

77 percent support a program that would clear the way for illegal immigrants to seek citizenship if they’ve been in the United States for at least five years, pay a fine and back taxes, learn to speak English and have no criminal record.

The CBS poll also found a majority of Americans approve the government collecting phone records to use in the fight against terrorism.
