Mr. Popularity

Okay, this is pretty interesting, courtesy of Andrew Sullivan. What to make of these data?

Second terms are supposed to be tough - but George H.W. Bush, Reagan, and Clinton all rose in popularity over time. And Clinton did it in the midst of scandal and impeachment.

Carter gets a bad rap but he still hovered near 50%. The despised Johnson was around 44% in 1966. And I didn't realize how much people hated Truman.

But Chimpy McFlightsuit stands in a class by himself.
