When President George W. Bush left office, he left with the lowest approval ratiing in America's short history but now Americans may want the 43rd President back.
Unquestionably one of the most unpopular Presidents in the history of the United States is George W. Bush and upon leaving office he also held one of the lowest approval ratings in the nation’s 234 year history with 22 per cent. However, some Americans want the 43rd President of the United States back, at least according to a Gallup poll that was released on Thursday.
Politico reports that 50 per cent of Americans prefer having the current President Barack Obama rather than his predecessor but 44 per cent want the former President back in office, which some may view as surprising.
The poll further shows that 83 per cent of Democrats believe President Obama is conducting his job very well, while only 11 per cent of Republicans think Obama is doing well enough. However, among Independents 46 per cent approve but 47 per cent disapprove, which is making the Independent vote come 2010 quite difficult.
The telephone survey was conducted among 1,253 registered voters between December 4 and 7 and contains a margin of error of +/- 2.8 percentage points.
Another poll released on Wednesday, reports the Huffington Post, showed that 35 per cent of Republicans want to impeach the President and 42 per cent of Republicans do not believe Obama was born in the United States. A quarter of Democrats believe President Bush allowed the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks to occur.
