RE: Given how critical favorability ratings are to being a successful President, its hard to understand how the Founding Fathers neglected to include anything about it in Article II of the Constitution. Pretty negligent of them.
What’s should they have included? This I’d really like to read.
I was being sarcastic. Of course they had no way of doing modern-style opinion polls in 1787. I just have gotten tired of the way the media acts like popularity ratings are the criterion whether a policy or decision is good or bad. When Clinton was shown to have lied under oath, we were supposed to ignore it because his popularity ratings were still high. When Bush had low ratings, that was supposed to discredit anything he did.
