With mixed emotions, I am here to announce that George W. Bush is the most unpopular President since we started measuring it. My emotions are mixed because I finally have statistics to back up what I’ve been saying for years. However, I wish I had been wrong all along, and that GWB wasn’t really all that bad.
But he is.
It’s kind of interesting to note, that he has not sunk below Nixon with regard to approval rating. He’s only risen above Nixon (and Truman’s) disapproval rating. His disapproval rating is 71% and his approval rating is 28%. Nixon’s approval rating was 22% but his disapproval rating never got above 66%.
This means that there used to be more people who didn’t feel very strongly one way or t’other. These days, 99% of those polled had a very strong opinion about Bush.
What does it mean? I’m not sure.
