According to a new CNN poll conducted Wednesday, President Obama will be leaving the White House with his highest approval rating since 2009. In a poll surveyed of 1,000 people between January 12-15, Obama received a 60 percent approval rating.
Previously, former presidents such as Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan left office with higher approval ratings than Obama. Clinton finished out with 66 percent, while Reagan ended on 64 percent.
In the CNN poll, 25 percent of respondents classified Obama as one of the greatest presidents. This actually surpasses the rating held for Reagan, which was at 11 percent. Clinton held 10 percent, and George W. Bush was around 5 percent.
Considering CNN‘s released poll, we ask you: do you believe Obama is one of the greatest presidents of all time?
