20% presidents

Only three presidents reached as low as the 20s in favorability polls: Richard Nixon sunk the lowest, but he got out before he had the sustained numbers of these two:

Harry S Truman: "The buck stops here."

George W. Bush: "I'm the decider."

The American public grew to despise both who believed in the imperial presidency, one of whom saw it as responsibility and the other, as arbitrary and capricious power.
