Bush Still Most Popular 21st Century President!

And he's more popular than Watergate-battered Nixon, to boot! As CBS says,

Bush's low job approval is far below that of some of his two-term
predecessors at this point in their second terms. In November 1985,
President Reagan had a 65 percent approval rating, and Bill Clinton's
job approval in November 1997 was 57 percent. Bush's rating is higher
than Richard Nixon's was at the same point in his administration.


But Nixon was a 1.75 term president, so you need to calculate the figures differently.

Nixon's 6th year was 6/7 of his term, while Bush's, presuming he serves out his term, is at the 3/4 point.
