In a CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll of 609 adults taken September 5-6 shows:
“Most responsible for the problems in New Orleans after the hurricane”
13% said George W. Bush
8% said “federal agencies”
25% said “state and local officials”
38% said “no one is to blame”
6% had no opinion.
Also, 29% said that “top officials in the federal agencies responsible for handling emergencies should be fired”; 63% said they should not; 8% had no opinion.
This falls a long the same lines as a previous ABC Poll previous posted.
Fifty-six% polled September 5-6 said they believe the hurricane devastated the city beyond repair.
93% of poll respondents said they believe Katrina is the worst natural disaster to strike the United States in their lifetime.

But a majority of respondents — 63 percent — said they believe the city should rebuild. And 66 percent said they believe all New Orleans residents should evacuate the city.
