Gallup: Bush 49, Obama 45

Posted by on Jun 12, 2013 at 3:05 pm

Looks like all those scandals are taking a toll on the failed president. Fresh numbers today:

Uh oh. Down to 45% while yesterday we just learned his predecessor had surpassed him.

Americans’ views of former president George W. Bush have improved, with 49% now viewing him favorably and 46% unfavorably. That is the first time since 2005 that opinions of him have been more positive than negative.

At the current rate it may be a long time until Obama is ever viewed favorably again.

    I don’t see a correlation between Bush and Obama approval ratings. FORMER Presidents always get more favorable as time goes by. What was Bush’s approval rating in year 6 of his Presidency? That is an accurate comparison. 15 years from now Obama will have a positive approval rating just because he was the first black President. Only the real haters will remember the name Benghazi.

    White Guilt (TM) earns Obama at least ten points in all these polls, so the real numbers would be much, much lower with a whitey in the WH.

    Thanks for playing. Idiot.
