Popular Presidents

Cenk points out that Clinton's approval rating on the day of impeachment was precisely twice that which George Bush received in the recent Harris ARG poll.

I remember at the time how the press, weeping and moaning that the public just didn't understand how evil Bill Clinton was, kept harping on the fact that his favorability rating was much lower. And, indeed, it was lower than his job approval rating. At the height of impeachment, Clinton had favorability ratings in the 50s still higher than Bush's.

But, people like Bush and didn't like Clinton. Must Not Stop Repeating That.
