Obama's Big Start

Gallup reports President Barack Obama has an initial approval rating of 68% his first week in office. Only JFK had a higher initial approval rating in all the years Gallup has ranked approval.



Mr. Obama is the 9th newly inaugurated President for which Gallup has measured an approval rating. The numbers range from a low of 51% for Presidents Reagan and George H.W. Bush to 72% for President Kennedy.


And even people who don't approve of Mr. Obama, have kudos for the way he handled his transition to power. A seperate Gallup poll shows 83% of people give him high marks for the transition. (Gallup)

Initially when Obama became the first black president, he was the favorite of whole nation. But after nearly one year there has been a tremendous fall in his popularity partly because of failure his bring US economy out of recession and also sending more troops to Afghanistan.
