I don't know where you got your info from,but I would have to respectfully disagree with the order.Ronald Reagan in my opinion should be ranked higher than George Bush Sr. George Sr. was only a one term President. He sent our troops to Panama and then to the first Gulf war.Conflicts we should of stayed out of.Also where is Truman?I would put him high on the list.He was President at the end of WW2.Just my opinion.

This is so laughable the election is over and by the way Bush Jr. left office with the lowest recorded approval of any President. Another delusional Republican trying to re-write history.

I just pulled it from Wikipedia. I began thinking about it last night and wanted to see not only where Obama fit in in this category, but also where other Presidents came in. Surprisingly (and I agree with you wholeheartedly), Truman came in last in average approval (I forgot to list Truman because I was already up to ten since two were tied). Possibly because he was taking over one of the top 5 highly regarded Presidents ever? Who knows. This wasn't meant to cause any kind of argument, but rather just put something up here for folks to see.
