CNN Poll: How Obama stacks up against predecessors

CNN Political Unit

Washington (CNN) – As President Barack Obama ends his second year in office, a new national poll indicates that just under half of all Americans approve of the job he's doing in the White House, lower than most of his recent predecessors at the same time in their first term in office.

According to a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Monday, the public is split on how Obama has handled his duties, with 48 percent saying they approve and an equal amount saying they disapprove.

    Apart from the media who cares??
    You are comparing apples with oranges or past Presidents in "totally different circumstances", at thier 2nd year.
    Those who were Republican and/or Democrat, and some clearly brighter than others, in either overall IQ or Political smarts.
    My point is the comparison is meaningless all that is relevant is his own support ratios which come the state of the Union will be higher than now.
    Watch this space.
    PS keep pushing for Sarah Palin to run for President in 2012 surest guarantee Obama gets re-elected.
