More than six in 10 Michiganders say George W. Bush’s presidency will go down as either below average or among the worst ever, according to The Detroit Free Press/Local 4 Michigan Poll.
And among the 62% who say Bush won’t be remembered favorably, 37% say his two terms will go down as among the worst, according to the poll conducted Monday through Wednesday of 800 Michigan adults.
Four percent of those polled said Bush would rank as one of the best presidents, 9% ranked him above average and 25% said he was average.
The poll also showed just 23% of people surveyed approve of the job Bush is doing, while 73% disapprove. The approval rating is the lowest since Selzer began conducting Michigan surveys for the Free Press in 2006. In January, Bush’s approval rating was 26%.
