How Far Has Obama Fallen?
Well, the POTUS is down in nearly every poll. But so what, counter his supporters, Reagan had a godawful first year in terms of popularity.
Yes, that is quite true. But as bad as Obama?
Well, let us look at the first year of every president from Truman forward. Where did they come in, and how did they end up in 12-ish months?
So your resulting graph looks like this:
Thats Obama, there in red. He entered office with the lowest popularity of any president. And while Clinton took an initial skid only 6 months in, he rebounded. As you see from Obamas red line, he has steadily sunk in popularity to where he is the most unpopular first-year president in approval rating history.
And yes, while Reagan had a bad first year, he never fell as bad as the current President. Basically, all presidents have a bad first year (except George W. Bush, who soared in popularity due to September 11, 2001, which the Czar is certain he would trade to have those lives back), but take a look at that crashing red line.
Do you think the President gets it? Do you think he understands what this means? Is this a B+ president?
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
