Those ratings were pretty basement to begin with, but it does look like some Democrats are rethinking how bad Bush was  after a term and change of Obama.
More Americans remember George W. Bush approvingly than negatively, according to a new survey released with Washington mired in scandals and President Obama under fire for expanding his predecessor’s surveillance of Americans.
Forty-nine percent of Americans view Bush favorably while 46 percent view him negatively, Gallup reports. Democrats developing an appreciation for Bush at a faster rate than any other group, though his numbers are up among across the political spectrum.
“Currently, 84 percent of Republicans, 46 percent of independents, and 24 percentof Democrats have a favorable view of Bush, each up more than 10 points since 2009,” Gallup notes. “However, the more recent improvement in his ratings, a five-point overall uptick since November 2010, has been more apparent among Democrats, whose rating has increased by 10 points since then.”
That gives Bush a better approval rating than Obama among  voters in general. Bush’s approval ratings among independents are striking considering that Obama’s ratings in that group was down as low as 29 percent .
