KATRINA POLL....The Pew Research Center has released a detailed poll about reactions to Hurricane Katrina, and the results are unsurprising. Democrats and Republicans have about the same opinion of the state/local response, but split sharply on the quality of the federal response. Likewise, there's a huge split between whites and blacks about whether or not the government response would have been better if most of the victims had been white.

More details are here. Other results: George Bush's approval rating is down, nobody has been reassured about our ability to respond to a terrorist attack, television as a source of news is way up and newspapers and the internet are down, and overall, Katrina is the sixth most closely followed news story of the past two decades.
