    Cheney's public support slides 

    Vice President Dick Cheney's popularity has declined steadily since October, and more than one-fourth of Republican primary voters think President Bush should choose a new running mate, the University of Pennsylvania's National Annenberg Election Survey shows.

    In October, 43 percent of the public had a favorable opinion of Cheney, and 26 percent unfavorable. But in the last two weeks of February, 33 percent had a favorable opinion and 36 percent unfavorable. Republicans remained the most friendly to him, with 58 percent favorable and 15 percent unfavorable. But in October they'd been 74 percent favorable and 6 percent unfavorable.

    With his approval ratings dropping and rumblings that he should be dropped from the ticket, Cheney emerged from his undisclosed location Tuesday to perform a cable television trifecta, sitting for rare interviews on CNN, Fox and MSNBC. In all of them, Cheney said he'd be Bush's running mate again: "He's (Bush) asked me to serve with him on the ticket again for the next four years, and I'm happy to do that. As long as I can be of assistance and he wants me in that spot, I plan to serve."
