The rest of America has finally realized what the fine visitors of this site have known since 2008: that George W. Bush is better than Barack Obama.
According to a new CNN/ORC poll released Wednesday, Bush received a favorable review from 52 percent of those surveyed. Obama trailed behind, receiving a favorable review from 49 percent of those surveyed.
Bush also received fewer unfavorable reviews than the current president. From those surveyed, Bush received 43 percent unfavorable reviews, while Obama received 49 percent unfavorable reviews.
The study was conducted on May 29-31 by telephone, surveying 1,025 Americans, with an overall margin of error of plus-or-minus 3 percentage points.
It is also worth noting that among all living presidents, George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton both received a 64 percent favorable review. The trend seems to be that the longer a president has been out of office, the less they are hated. That makes sense considering retired presidents focus on charities and other feel-good stuff rather than making critical decisions about the fate of the nation.
Either way, I chalk this up as a W for Dubya..
