Presidential Favorability

Rasmussen Reports has posted a new chart of presidential ratings for all of the American presidents. Each president has a score for favorable and unfavorable. The poll then breaks those two categories into the following four: very favorable, somewhat favorable, somewhat unfavorable, very unfavorable.

No big surprises there, but I did notice one interesting comparison.

The two worst unfavorable scores:
Richard Nixon--60%
George W. Bush--59%
Not only is President Bush vying for the most unfavorable, he actually surpasses President Nixon in the "very unfavorable" category:
Richard Nixon:
somewhat unfavorable--35%; very unfavorable--25%
George W. Bush:
somewhat unfavorable--19%; very unfavorable--40%
That 40% is by far the worst in history.
