Obama Might Be Doing Badly, But So Was Reagan

by Morgan Clendaniel

December 13, 2010

The good folks at TPM have done the obvious and yet incredibly helpful and looked at the month-to-month approval ratings of all the Presidents since Eisenhower. You can see it much larger and clickable here. But here are some takeaways:

Obama vs. George W. Bush. As you can see, Bush got a huge lift from 9/11, though quickly began descending from those heights.

Obama vs. Clinton.

Obama vs. Reagan.

TPM has explanations of the various ups and downs of each presidency. Check out the full data there.
