Chimpy’s job approval rating in the new Gallup poll is 33%, down one point from their previous poll (34%) and just one point higher than his all-time low in that poll (32%).
Gallup measures Congress’ job approval rating at 29%, and I’m sure much will be made of that number in the media and on the right. However, it’s not very wise to compare the job approval rating of one individual to that of an entire branch of government. Apples and Oranges, my friends.
More can be gained from a comparison of the job approval ratings of two individual leaders, say – Nancy Pelosi and George Bush.
Nancy Pelosi’s job approval rating in the latest AP-Ipsos poll is 45% (with 41% disapproval), while Chimpy’s is a meager 35% (with 61% disapproval). Now we’re talking Apples to Apples!
