The last nine presidential-years, Obama's first four and Bush's final five, rank in the top 10-most-polarized years. It seems that Americans of both parties are far more likely to base presidential approval on party affiliation rather than on the job the president is doing. This polarized mindset perpetuates government gridlock, as politicians realize effectiveness is not a requisite for reelection.
