National (US) Poll - May 31, 2013 - American Voters Like Clinton O | Quinnipiac University Connecticut
Her score is down substantially from her all-time high score in February. The drop in her favorability is substantial among men, Republicans and independent voters. One reason for her drop may be that 48 percent of voters blame her either a little or a lot for the death of the American ambassador in Benghazi," Brown added.
Although she may be liked......hopefully she sees the writing on the wall. As most know how she likes to exaggerate things. Course this time. She knows.....she cant just shed a fake tear and all will be forgotten.
Sadly this was all timed too early, IMO. Imagine this coming out in October of 2014? American's have a short memory on things like this this and the politicians know it.

Already they are starting to speak out about him.
Even if the country was divided 50/50 there was longer than a 'brief period' where ALL Americans supported our 'Wah time Setting President'. Where BushII lost much needed support among the People was Independants. As late as 2008 just under half the dems thought BushII had at least a fair amount to do with the stopping of terrorist attacks. Pew
But in a Dec 2008 poll on is his legacy one of accomplishments or failure only 33% of Repubs thought he it is failure, while 83% of dems thought it was a failure , BUT so did 68% of Independents.
So at the bitter end 2/3rds of the Repubs still clung to the belief BushII wassa winner while it was Independents by the same percent who saw him as a Loser.
I do understand many highly partisan folks see the world as 'with me or agin me' but the truth is as many folks want what works over party label.
The key point of governance you overlook is the GOP in Congress rode hard to the bitter end with BushII even as the crash was starting, only as the Presidential elections heated up did the congress critters suddenly embrace 'change'.
Nice try though...
Given your graph doesn't show what political party is still hugging BushII and the Pew polls do, I'd suggest the Repubs stayed until their nuts got wet n then fled the sinking ship! While poll numbers can swing around a bit, the usual breakdown is 25 to 30% either dem or repub with the rest 40% or so Independent. Given that and the final dismal approval rating in the mid 20's seems like the lock step Repubs road it down to the bitter end. More so in Congress.
