Barack Obama’s poll numbers look eerily like George W. Bush’s

Barack Obama’s approval ratings are sinking. “His presidency is doomed!” say Republicans. “Same thing happened to Clinton and Reagan,” say Democrats.

“Doomed” is a strong word (plenty of presidents are unpopular in their own time and revered later on; see, for instance, Truman) but what’s happening to Obama looks a whole lot more like what happened to George W.
