Bush's job approval rating is higher than Obama's

George W. Bush’s job approval rating as president has spiked to 47%, according to a new Gallup poll. That’s 1 point higher than Barack Obama’s job approval rating. Bush’s 47% approval rating raises serious questions about the wisdom of the White House’s decision to relentlessly attack him in the months before the Democrats’ historic losses in the midterm elections. Obama had kept warning a House Republican majority would return to Bush-era policies. But Obama’s message did little to galvanize the liberal base, and independents flocked to the GOP on Election Day.
