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.

and you can't even say that we deserved George W Bush. He wasn't the President elect, Al Gore was.

What does that tell you?

That they are equally popular in American politics?
It speaks volumes about how biased the mainstream media is, and how they would savage any appearance by Bush.

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.

NBC poll came out earlier this month weighing Bush's approval rating a hair north of 30, which sounds far more accurate.

first of all, of course he will - people love hearing him stumble over words from a teleprompter. Obama will be a lifelong pop culture/celebrity figure. I give 3 years out of office (if he ever leaves office) before he whores his fambly out on some stupid faux-reality show.

second...pardon my ignorance, but why on earth would you or anyone else consider that Bush will speak at the DNC??

What party do you think is mine? I have very little use for the right other than it is not the left. With two piss poor choices I see the left as the as the much worse choice~

So one STD is comparable to another?

Shocking.

Failure at the POTUS position means hardship for us all.

So poll results from ABC and the Washington Post suddently aren't liberal enough for you?

It's because 47% of the population approve of him not being POTUS. The rest don't care.
