Obama’s approval rating is a lot like…Reagan’s?

in Uncategorized by

Barack Obama’s third-year approval rating is  44 percent, his lowest yet. Rather like someone else in the not-so-distant past:

Looking just at other elected presidents’ third-year averages, Obama’s 44% is among the lowest, better than only Jimmy Carter’s 37% average in 1979-1980. Ronald Reagan’s third-year average of 45% was similar to Obama’s.

Obama’s low for the year was 38 percent and he’s now around Reagan’s third year average, 45 percent. Reagan’s low point was 35 percent, but he rebounded more quickly and at this point was at 52 percent approval.
