Visualization: Presidential approval

Explore and compare the approval ratings of presidents in this interactive visualization.

This is data from the Gallup poll. The source is The American Presidency Project, with data adapted from the Gallup Poll and compiled by Gerhard Peters. I computed the value “Net Approving” as “Approving” minus “Disapproving.”

As most polls are conducted over a few days, I used the ending date as the date of the poll.

I present data in a table and a timeline. Then, I present several views based on the poll date as the number of days from the start of each presidential term.
