Obama’s final favorability rating in office: 58%

Posted by | January 17, 2017 11:30 | Filed under: Good News Politics

That’s a good number after 8 years.

Obama reached his peak favorability rating of 78 percent before his own inauguration in January 2009, according to Gallup. He averaged 53 percent favorability over his two terms in the White House.

Obama’s final marks before he leaves office exceed that of his predecessor, George W. Bush, who departed with a 40 percent favorability. Bill Clinton had a 57 percent rating before he left office, just one point less than Obama’s. George H.W. Bush left the White House in January 1993 with a 62 percent rating.
