NEW YORK A CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll released this morning shows the country very divided over who is primarily to blame for the poor emergency response to the hurricane castastrophe on the Gulf Coast...

... 42% of respondents characterized Bush's response to the disaster as bad or terrible... 35% said it was good or great.

Federal agencies got exactly the same marks.
State and local officials fared only a little better--their response was described as bad or terrible by 35% and good or great by 37%."

Nothing like a clear consensus.
