Polls: First 100 days comparison


What do we make of President Obama’s first 100 days? The answer is that he falls within the norm. His favorability rating–which is certainly high, but not historic–puts him about where George W. Bush was at this time in 2001. In fact, his rating is similar to Jimmy Carter’s in April of 1977 and Richard Nixon’s in April of 1969. President Obama’s approval rating is typical of a “change” election President. The only “outlier” is Bill Clinton, and that is most likely due to his low vote share (43%) in the election. So forget the 100 day hype. Obama is where he should be.
