President Barack Hussein Obama will leave office with a 60% approval rating.
Only three other modern presidents had an approval rating in the 60s when they left office: Dwight Eisenhower, Ronald Reagan, and Bill Clinton. President Obama joins that special group.
Meanwhile, the incoming PEOTUS, Donald J. Trump, has the lowest approval rating of any modern president-elect. He's at a paltry 37% approval.
That is the reality that Trump and his supporters will do their best to convince themselves that this is somehow "fake."
But Trump's low approval number reflects the American people's realization of the fact that when Mr. Obama leaves office tomorrow, intelligence, dignity, and human decency will leave the White House with him.
|Thank you, Mr. President|
