WASHINGTON, Sept. 17 (UPI) -- Forty-eight percent of Americans say President Bush is "in over his head," according to a Democrat-backed poll by James Carville's Democracy Corps.

"He is convincing people that he is uncertain about what to do," Bob Shrum, a co-founder of Democracy Corps, told the Washington Times.

"He is at one and the same time blustering and threatening and shooting off his mouth, but on the other hand, doesn't have any idea what to do."

The poll also found a majority of voters no longer trust Bush on the question of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, and 54 percent said he "does not have a plan to win the peace and bring American troops home," the Washington Times reported.

"By almost any measure, the president today is weaker than he was before Sept. 11," Carville said.

Bush had a 53 percent job-approval rating in the Democracy Corps poll.
