“He is running a bit ahead of Jimmy Carters historical standard, no denying it....(eyes rolling)”
“So far, 60 percent of Americans approve of the president’s handling of the economy, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll.”
Where did WaPo and Abissinia get these numbers? This is insane...
Ok, so now can he please take a LONG vacation - like for 4 more years???
Today’s new Gallup poll puts him at 59%. Compare him to previous presidents one month in, such as G W Bush (62%), Jimmy Carter (71%), Bill Clinton (59%), George H. W. Bush (63%), and Richard Nixon (60%), and you’ll discover that all we’re seeing is the public withhold judgment.
Now compare his disapproval ratings (people who’ve already made up their minds they don’t like him), 25% to George W Bush (21%), George Bush (13%), Ronald Reagan (18%), Jimmy Carter (9%), and Richard Nixon (6%). The only one with a higher disapproval rating was President Clinton, on his way to losing both houses of Congress.
The public didn’t realize quite how incompetent Carter was til about six weeks AFTER the hostage crisis began.
