USA Today’s Interactive Presidential Approval Comparator

by on August 18, 2009

presidential-rankingsUSA Today has built an interactive tool compiling presidential approval ratings for the last12 presidents, so that you can compare and contrast their various ratings.

There are two views. The first (above) is ratings in chronological order. Each color represents a different president and a timeline towards the bottom highlights significant events during the presidency. One thing you’ll probably notice right off the bat are the giant spikes in approval ratings during war and invasions. Yikes.
