Poll: Americans Rank Obama Administration Ethics Lower Than Those of Bush and Clinton



The percentage of Americans who believe President Barack Obama's administration has poor ethical standards is higher than that measured by Gallup at various points during presidencies of George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, a new poll finds.

Thirty-two percent of those surveyed said top Obama officials have "poor" ethics, according to a Gallup poll on Friday. This compares with figures of 29 percent for George W. Bush, 21 percent for Bill Clinton, 7 percent for George H.W. Bush, and 15 percent for Ronald Reagan, pollsters said.
