Known War Criminal has higher favorably than Mitt - Bloomberg
George W. Bush posts better favorability ratings than Mitt Romney in new Bloomberg survey
For all the talk about whether Mitt Romney should distance himself from George W. Bush –and the policies of the last GOP White House — a new survey shows that the former president actually has better favorability ratings than the Republican nominee.
A Bloomberg News National Poll released Wednesday has Bush receiving a favorable rating from 46 percent of those surveyed and an unfavorable rating from 49 percent. That’s compared to Romney’s 43 percent favorable and 50 percent unfavorable.
But it also shows how Bush — following the trend of other former presidents — has seen his popularity improve since leaving the White House, when his favorable numbers in some surveys hovered around the mid-30s.
The ratings are an improvement for Bush from even earlier this year, when a CNN/ORC poll found that Bush ranked as the least popular living ex-president. And as Ari Fleischer, Bush’s White House press secretary from 2001 to 2003, noted on Twitter Thursday, the numbers are the former president’s “best level in years.”
The survey, conducted Sept. 21-24, has an error margin of plus-minus 3.1 percentage points.
