Bush - 76% Disapproval Rating

A new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Monday sets a new record; George W. Bush now holds the highest disapproval record ever, at 76%. In comparison, Nixon held a 66% disapproval rating when he resigned, and Harry Truman, the previous record holder, who had a 67% disapproval rating his last year in office.

On the other hand, Rasmussen Reports has continuing good news for Obama's popularity rating:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Approval Index for Tuesday shows Obama rating is a +18, up ten points from +8 on the night after the election.

The Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve of the way he is handling the role of President-elect. Rasmussen Reports believes that this is a better measure of public perceptions than the overall approval ratings.

Currently, 41% of voters nationwide Strongly Approve of the way that Obama is handling his new role as President-elect while 23% Strongly Disapprove The number who Strongly Disapprove is down nine percentage points since the night after the election.
