Pollsters Say McCain Yoked To Legacy Of President Bush

Buried in the latest NY Times/CBS poll that focuses on race and the presidential race, is a nugget on how many Americans associate presumptive GOP candidate John McCain with President Bush:

The poll found that Mr. McCain is yoked to the legacy of President Bush -- majorities believe that Mr. McCain, as president, would continue Mr. Bush's policies in Iraq and on the economy. Mr. Bush's approval rating on the economy is as low as it has been in his presidency, 20 percent; and even while there has been an increase in the number of Americans who think the war is going well, there has been no change in the significantly large number of people who think it was a mistake to have invaded.
