Poll: George W. Bush's approval rating matches Obama's

Poll: George W. Bush's approval rating matches Obama's
April 23, 2013, 10:13 AM

More than four years after he left office, former President George W. Bush's approval rating now equal President Obama's, according to a new Washington Post/ ABC poll.

Forty-seven percent of Americans say they now approve of the former president, while 53 percent disapprove, according to the poll, which surveyed 1,000 adults from April 17-21. Mr. Obama's approval rating also stands at 47 percent.

Mr. Bush left office under a cloud of controversy, taking blame from the public for the 2008 financial crash, the Iraq war and his handling of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. In an Oct. 2008 Washington Post poll, his approval rating was as low as 23 percent. By January 2009, when he left office, just 33 percent approved while 66 percent disapproved.

The former president's improved public image demonstrates how time out of office, and out of the public eye, can help bolster a politician's popularity. Mr. Bush may also get to refurbish his image with the opening of his presidential library this week on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas.

While his approval rating has increased in recent years, a majority of Americans (53 percent) still disapprove of his handling of the economy, and 57 percent disapprove of his decision to invade Iraq in 2003.

Yeah, and Nixon somehow became a respected statesman towards the end. People have short memories and Americans are very forgiving, apparently.

How could you not approve of him right now? He's nowhere near public office and spends his time painting. He's entirely unobjectionable.

How the hell is Bush back up to 47%?

47%? For Bush?

That number's GOT to be soft. Because I guarantee you Obama will have a prime speaking slot at the 2016 DNC convention.

Bush will not, nor will he even be mentioned.

There can't be any doubt at least part if it is the public comparing him to the current clown in charge.

And people find themselves listening to Jimmy Carter, who's almost certainly the worst President in American history.

Seriously, Obama is going to have a PRIME TIME speaking slot at the 2016 DNC. Is there any doubt to that?

Meanwhile, Bush will not speak at the RNC, nor will his name ever get mentioned.

What does that tell you?

That they are equally popular in American politics?
