George W. Bush and Dick Cheney haven't received any post-office favorability bump according to a poll released Friday.

The Gallup poll found that more than six in 10 respondents continue to have unfavorable views of the former president and vice president. Their approval ratings were in the 30s.


These numbers suggest that Bush has not yet received a favorability bump that presidents often see after leaving office. Bush's 35 percent favorability rating remains close to his all time low of 32 percent in April of 2008. As Gallup's trend lines shows, Bush's negative numbers shot up in July of 2005 and never recovered.

And, predictably, there is a strong partisan divide on Bush's approval rating. Nearly three quarters of Republicans continue to have a favorable view of the former president.
