Interesting graphic at 538, about which Nate says, in part:
The highest initial approval rating for a newly elected president… appears to belong to Kennedy, whom Gallup pegged at 72 percent approval shortly after his inauguration
Obama may beat that mark.
I was a bit surprised to see that Reagan’s initial approval was at almost exactly 50%–worse than any new president in the time series, which goes back to Eisenhower.
