Be sure to click on the "comparison" tab at the top of the chart.

Guess who Obama's early approval ratings trends seem to most mirror?

Carter and... you guessed it. Reagan. LMAO

The Gallup organization first started asking Americans how they approved of the job the president was doing in the 1940s. See how each president since then has fared in the approval poll, look at some news events that influenced public opinion and compare how approval ratings evolved for each president.

I wonder who he's more similar to, Carter or Reagan.

That's pretty neat. Interesting that Reagan's started much lower than Obama's and then climbed while Obama's has done the opposite.

Clinton was the most consistantly approved of and one of the highest when he left office it appears.

That is pretty cool. He is also somewhat similar to Truman who started around 90% and continued to drop.

I think people making a big deal either way about approval ratings 10 months in an administration is pretty silly. The most important rating comes in Nov 2012.

How do you figure it tracks Reagan? Reagan spiked and then fell to his inaguration day level in the same time frame.

Yeah. It doesn't matter how bad a president screws the country. It only matters if he wins re-election.

What else do you take from Dirk's comment about the most important poll will be in November 2012? Bush was wildly unpopular through much of his presidency, but he was popular enough in November 2004 to get re-elected. How did that work out?

That's why Obama's lost all that weight. The man's protein is spoken for as soon as it enters his body.
