So here we are, four years and four months into the Obama presidency. How are his approval numbers?
As of June 2, the President has an approval of 48 percent and a disapproval of 44 percent.
As of June 2, 2005, President Bush (four years and four months into HIS presidency) had and approval of 48 percent, and a disapproval of 47 percent.
That means that Bush’s numbers were within the margin of error of Obama’s numbers, at this point in the Presidency.
And Bush had those numbers with the press on the attack, while Obama largely has the press carrying his water.
