The Best and Worst Approval Ratings

Using the aforementioned Gallup Poll, we can get a good idea of the presidential approval ratings for post war presidents first 100 days, with JFK, despite the events of the Bay of Pigs invasion, coming out on top with an impressive 74% at the end of his first 100 days, jumping 11 points from his opening approval rating.

Although President Reagan’s final approval rating didn’t hit the giddy heights of 74%, he would end his first 100 days at 68%. However, what would make those numbers more impressive is the fact that they jumped even more at the outset of his administration, shooting from 51% to the final 68%.
