George Bush now polling higher than Obama
Think back to 2009, right after Obama was sworn in as president. If you told an Obama supporter back then that this would happen, they would have laughed in your face.
George W. Bush outpolls Barack Obama
Americans now have a more favorable view of former President George W. Bush than they do of President Barack Obama.
It is the first time in more than a decade that Americans have expressed a favorable view of Bush, at least according to a new CNN/ORC poll released Wednesday.
Bush is seen in a favorable light by 52 percent of those surveyed, compared with 43 percent who still view the 43rd president unfavorably. Americans are split on Obama, with 49 percent responding favorably and unfavorably.
The last time Bush polled in positive territory was in early April 2005, close to three months into his second term.
