The Boston Red Sox are 20-8 and on top of the baseball world after a disastrous 2012 season under Bobby Valentine. The team revamped themselves this offseason, and a new manager was brought in: former Boston pitching coach John Farrell. The Sox won their 20th game last season under Bobby Valentine on May 20th, and collapsed in the second half with a 26-50 record.
In Massachusetts, fans are in love with the new look Sox led by Farrell. In fact, only 1% of people disapprove of Farrell, according to Public Policy Polling, the third most accurate polling firm in November's presidential election.
John Farrell has a 1% disapproval rating with Massachusetts voters. Pretty sure that's a first for anyone in our polling— PublicPolicyPolling (@ppppolls) May 3, 2013
That's pretty noteworthy. A 1% disapproval rating is stellar. But just how good is it, really?
To put John Farrell's 1% disapproval in context- George Washington's is 3%, Mother Theresa's 5%, Gandhi's 9%, Santa's 13%— PublicPolicyPolling (@ppppolls) May 3, 2013
Holy crap. Less people disapprove of John Farrell in Massachusetts than the first president of the United States, the most admired person of the 20th century, a non-violent peace advocate, and one of the most beloved fictional characters in history. Great company, indeed.
