Got everything except for the minimum approval rating one. I knew that Bush Sr.'s approval tanked during the economic recession but I didn't realize it had gotten that low.

I got that one but didn't get the maximum approval rating one. Didn't know what got Sr.'s approval rating so high. Gulf War? Reagan's coattails?

It was nice when people could actually get news instead of propaganda and were not just locked away in their partisan bubbles where nothing that happened actually mattered and approval ratings could go up or down based on events happening in real time. As opposed to now when we've got objectively the worst, most corrupt, most inept, most shamelessly criminal president in US history sitting in the White House and still his base has no idea that he's doing anything wrong so his approval stays relatively constant through 3 years.

and neither are Dwight Eisenhower, Allen Dulles, or Richard Bissell. But George Sr did get sick once in Japan. Congratulations on knowing at least one thing about history.
