Just a little factoid for your Friday:
According to the poll, released Thursday morning, 43% of people questioned had a favorable opinion of Bush, with 54% saying they had an unfavorable view of the former president. Bush’s 43% favorable rating is the same as it was in 2010 in CNN polling, but is up from his mid-30’s favorable rating during 2009, his first year out of the White House.
Usually after a president leaves office his reputation gets a little burnished because, hey, memories of good times and all that, and nostalgia, etc. Not so with this guy.
