Poll: W. More Popular Than Mitt

Who says people don’t like George W. Bush? A Bloomberg News National poll released on Friday shows that the 43rd president has a higher favorability rating than Mitt Romney. Romney polled at a 43 percent favorable and 50 percent unfavorable, compared to a 46 percent favorable rating and a 49 percent unfavorable rating for former president George W. Bush. But don’t think it’s just unlikable Romney; Bush also polled better favorability ratings than former vice president Joe Biden (41 percent favorable, 46 percent unfavorable). It looks like Bush is moving up in the world, with his former press secretary saying the 43rd president is at his “best level in years.”
