George W. Bush's Approval Rating Sees Improvement

For the first time since 2005, Americans like former president George W. Bush more than they dislike him, according to a Gallup poll released Tuesday.

The poll, based on telephone interviews from June 1-4 with 1,529 adults, gave Bush an approval rating of 49 percent, compared with a 46 percent unfavorable rating. (Though the polls have a standard deviation of 3 points.)

Gallup's Jeffrey M. Jones said the increased approval rating is fairly typical of ex-presidents, though Bush still lags far behind his predecessors.
