Presidental Approval Comparison

18 months into the first terms, the presidential approval ratings for various Presidents was:

  1. Eisenhower 75%
  2. Bush GWH 74%
  3. JFK 67%
  4. LBJ 65%
  5. Bush GW 65%
  6. Nixon 55%
  7. Ford 48%
  8. Carter 43%
  9. Clinton 43%
  10. Reagan 41%
  11. Obama 41%
  12. Truman 34%

Reagan, Clinton and Truman all went on to win another term, so maybe Obama is following their strategy of not peaking too early!
