Voters Fondly Remember George H.W. Bush

The liberal media which excoriated George H.W. Bush when he was president now proclaims its love for him following his death last week. Even most Democrats, it seems, now look favorably on the 41st president.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 77% of all Likely U.S. Voters share a favorable opinion of Bush, including 36% with a Very Favorable one. Just 17% have a somewhat or Very Unfavorable view of the Republican who served as president from 1989 to 1993. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
