Obama popularity tracks Bush’s

President Obama’s job approval rating continues to track those of President Bush (before 9/11).  The latest Rasmussen poll puts Obama’s job approval at 56% positive versus 43% negative.  On March 9-11, 2001, Bush’s job approval was at 58% positive versus 29% negative.

As John Hinderaker points out, Democrats may be overestimating their ability to exploit President Obama’s popularity to push through unpopular policies.
