When they leave the office of president.

Bonus if you do pros and cons of their administration.

I think you would be able to work across the aisle. Probably would be a decent 2 termer. I'd say 60% and is able to balance the budget and lower taxes well. Could be a top-20 president.

In the polarized era of today, I'd say 47% approval, 47% disapproval.  You would stick to your guns, but have a lot of your proposals stopped by congress.  A close reelection campaign that could go either way.

Far-right social, fiscal, and neo-conservative.  Christian conservative.  My #1 goal is to overturn Roe v. Wade and end abortion worldwide.  Reaganite movement conservatism is the path forward for the GOP, not populism, nationalism, or liberal-tarianism!

Pro-immigration (secure the border and end sanctuary cities, but don't deport non-criminal illegals).

Returned to GOP avatar since Trump mostly defunded PP via executive action.

Extreme Republican would have to run one heck of a campaign to win the Presidency, or be running against a complete dunce. So, I'm guessing on inauguration day, you'd have around 60-65% approval a la Obama 2009. As soon as you actually had to work on any legislation or pass any executive actions, however, they would soon crash to upper 30s - low 40s. I imagine re-election against any competent Democrat would be very difficult unless you didn't try to pass any of your agenda in your first term.

Mid 50s going into office, high 40s at the end of two terms.

Fluctuates between mid/low 50s and high 40s through first term, but levels off in the mid 50s during second term and closes in the (very) high 50s. Never goes underwater.

Would be able to work with both Democrats and Republicans; I'd imagine the approval ratings would stay in the 60s for almost the whole term, never dropping below 55.

Two termer, able to stay above the 50s for most of it. After the midterms, a big controversy rises. Exits office with lower 40s; slowly recovers afterwards.

45%, as he probably has some pretty iffy guesses on the economy but is a coalition gatherer on foreign policy, with a few missteps here and there, and a tad too socially libertarian.

57%. Winning the primary was the biggest problem. Afterwards, Kingpoleon wins the general election narrowly but becomes popular quite soon because of his ability to get Republicans and Democrats to work together. However, this leads to increasing opposition from the political fringes, who think "D.C. elitism" runs the country. That proves to be very beneficial when a fringe candidate wins the primary for the other party in the campaign before his second term, which gets Kingpoleon re-elected fairly easily. In his second term, his approval ratings are in the high 50s and low 60s, though his administration is being criticized for being very good at managing things, yet lacking a clear vision on the future of the country.

3% after impeachment for selling state secrets to our respected ally, Israel. David B. would relocate to a quiet Hasidic neighborhood in New York to live out the rest of his days. In his 80's, David Bethlem would achieve a certain status among the East Coast neoconservative elite and would enjoy a brief Renaissance right before his death in 2085. In his post-mortem, Israel's Prime Minister would award him the country's highest honor. Even Democrats would come to sing his praises, and some here call him the United States' "last liberal President" because of like one liberal thing he did.

49% approval 45% disapproval. You'd probably try to reach across the aisle to get things done but with that the hardcore conservative members of congress will label you a RINO and obstruct ya

After winning election by a slim margin, Shadow experiences high-30s approval ratings due to distrust on account of his ethnicity, however, after a year and a half, Shadow is able to break through the cloud of suspicion and charms the people with both his wit and ability to push through parts of his agenda while presiding over a booming economy. After 2 successful terms, Shadow has drastically improved relations between Americans and (American/Int)Muslims and hands off the torch with a hearty 55% approval rating.

Due to his utter disbelief at Shadow's success, Rush Limbaugh runs for the nomination in 2024 but a massive backlash against his rhetoric and OxyContin-popping ways causes him to go into hiding and subsequently loses his radio show contract.

In the high 50s through the beginning of her first term, but it gradually declines to the low 50s... just in time for re-election. However, Virginia ultimately wins a second term and the approvals inch upwards, closing out in the mid-high 50s.

Fairly high, I would imagine. Especially if there was some national tragedy and he responded strongly to it, I could see him hit 70. On the other hand, I wouldn't be surprised if someone in his cabinet or some executive branch official had some huge screwup that pulled him down to below 40.

Highly polarizing, a bit like Obama. Probably gets a second term and ends in the 45-50 range, being loved by liberals and hated by conservatives.

47%, follows an Obama-esque course of barely managing to keep the liberal base satiated by some blueberries here and there...but he alienates the far-right

Ultimately, his re-election chances depend on how weather the opposite candidate is effective or not,... either way the candidate will be higher in energy...now whether that equates to Trump or to McCain '08...who knows.

48%.......controversial on economic issues and is too socially conservative to fire up a lot of the secular progressives, but still holds up well, enough to win re-election.

45%. Fought the hardest fights. Won some, lost some. Leaving with a legacy deeply divided by ideology.
