which of the country's last nine presidents had the lowest approval ratings after one year in office?
from today's cbs news poll:
granted, this is not terrific news for obama. but like bob woodward's example, it helps keeps things in perspective.
80% polled approve of obama's handling of the crisis in haiti. 60% approve of his handling of terrorism, 70% say he's a strong leader, and 62% are still optimistic about his presidency.
but there's some not so good news too: obama's disapproval scores are up, and many of those polled feel the president is doing too much to help banks and auto makers and not enough to help them.
