…Obama’s approval rating is now at 57 percent, the highest it’s been in his second term, according to a new Gallup survey.
The previous poll, conducted in the first week of November, found his approval rating at 53 percent.The bump is consistent with how lame-duck presidents are viewed in the days after their successor is elected. Former President George W. Bush’s approval rating was 28 percent after then-Sen. Obama was elected in 2008 — a 3-point uptick from the last poll before the election.
Former Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton also saw their stock increase when they became lame-ducks by 9 and 6 points, respectively.
Ronald Reagan’s approval rating after the 1988 election, meanwhile, matches the 57 percent Obama registered Tuesday, up 6 points from a poll before the race ended.
