    “According to Gallup, President Obama is tied with George W. Bush for most unpopular re-elected president since Gallup began measuring presidential job-approval in 1945. In fact, Gallup found that apart from Bush, “every president…has had a higher job-approval rating in the January following his reelection than Obama has.” “

    Pretty soon, Walter Mondale’s numbers will start looking good against Obama’s.
