According to a newÂ CNN/ORC poll, the alleged Muslim, Kenyan-born socialist/fascist who is ruining America now has a 52% approval rating. Whatâ€™s more, this is up from January, when the POTUS was enjoying a 50% approval rating, his highest since he took office.
It also marks the third consecutive poll where heâ€™s got a majority approval from the American people, and the fourth where heâ€™s shown a gain in popularity. According to The Hill, this is the best that America has felt about him since 2012.
Contrasting that with other modern presidents, you have Reagan with 48% approval, George W. Bush with 30%, and Bill Clinton narrowly edging out Barack with 55%.
â€˜President Obamaâ€™s strong approval ratings, at this point in his presidency, can only help Hillary Clintonâ€™s quest for the White House. Voters who generally believe that the president is doing a good job will be less inclined to vote for a change in the party occupying the White House.â€™
He went on to elaborate just why Obama may be so positively viewed.
â€˜President Obamaâ€™s legacy among second-term presidents will be strong. â€¦ Despite political opposition, Obamaâ€™s earnestness, intelligence, and dignified manner have all contributed to his high approval ratings and these factors will leave a strong second-term legacy for the president.â€™
Obamaâ€™s support for Clinton could indeed prove decisive in a battle in November between Clinton and her opponent, whose approval ratings are even lower despite massive populist appeal. But the outcome wonâ€™t be terribly clear cut. George H.W. Bush may have been able to credit Reagan partially for his victory in 1988, but being VP to the original President Clinton didnâ€™t help Al Gore win against George W. Bush in 2000. Purdy seems optimistic about Clintonâ€™s chances, but his forecast is certainly guarded.
â€˜Voters will likely view a vote for Clinton as a vote for the continued stability of the Obama administration versus the unpredictability of a potential Trump administration. Of course, the election is still four-plus months away and in politics that represents an eternity, where there can be many disruptive events that may occur that could change the dynamics of the race.â€™
