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.

It's got nothing to do with how any sane person feels about Bush, only how the bizarro left wing and their media minions feel about him.
that and he doesn't have to remain in the spotlight constantly..ie clinton, obama

Yes,

Look at all the party that distanced themselves from him when he single handedly lost the House of Representatives for them his second year in. Not everyone enjoys the taste of extreme liberal genitalia.

"Mr. Obama proved to be a major liability in the 2010 election"

Nor did they gain it back this last election.

A friend of mine, who is in the Navy, just posted on Facebook a couple of hours ago that he was pumping gas in Crockett, TX today and out of no where George W Bush came over, shook his hand and thanked him for his service.

Not a huge fan of the Bush presidency, but that is pretty f'n cool.

This is the same poll that had Carter at 56%. People tend to forget the politics and think of the man. I would say something similar is happening with W. He's a likable guy, doesn't mean they want endorse him as a candidate.

Very cool. A story he can tell his grandkids somebody about how he shook hands with the President of the United States.

And they were all sitting around, doing whatever it is they do, and boom, there we are dropping bombs 'n shit on them. And all they had been doing for the previous 20 years was watching ESPN-Middle East, and praising religion-agnostic Gods. When not pumping oil, they were living and letting live. Getting along with the larger world community. Solving fresh water issues in Africa.... Yet boom, we poop a Daisy-Cutter on their satellite dish and blew a hole in their sand...
