They are concerned, however, at another finding in the poll: some 64 per cent think the war on terrorism will only be a success if the terrorist leader is killed or apprehended, sending a clear signal of the task remaining.

"The danger is if it turns out at all like what happened to the President's father," said one Republican official, referring to George Bush Snr's failure to oust Saddam Hussein, the Iraqi leader, in the Gulf war.

Senior officials have attempted, ever since the war in Afghanistan was launched, to play down any certainty that bin Laden himself would be an easy catch. Donald Rumsfeld, the defence secretary, insisted that finding the al-Qaeda leader was an imprecise science.

For Mr Bush, there is at least one upside, however. So long as bin Laden's whereabouts are unknown, there is less pressure to decide quickly on where to launch the next phase of the war on terrorism - though if he turns up in another country, the decision will have been made for him.
