George Bush Polls Under 50 Percent–Why Would People Support A GOP Candidate Who Wants To Resume His Policies?

George W. Bush is the  only living ex-president with favorability under 50%. So why would people support a candidate who wants to resume his economic policies?

From CNN:

More than three years after leaving office, former President George W. Bush remains unpopular with the public, according to a new national poll.

A CNN/ORC International poll also indicates that two-thirds of Americans have a positive view of Bush’s predecessor, former President Bill Clinton.

According to the poll, released Thursday morning, 43% of people questioned had a favorable opinion of Bush, with 54% saying they had an unfavorable view of the former president. Bush’s 43% favorable rating is the same as it was in 2010 in CNN polling, but is up from his mid-30’s favorable rating during 2009, his first year out of the White House.
