Directions: Discuss one observation of each of the three influences I mentioned from three different presidents. Also, find one "honeymoon effect" from any president other than Obama, and describe how pronounced it is. For example, choose one president for your discussion of the economy, another president for your discussion of the "rally effect", and a third president for your research and discussion of scandal. You may use one of the three presidents you chose for discussion of the "honeymoon effect," or choose a fourth.
Choose three different presidents from Harry S. Truman through Bill Clinton and look at the data. Look for an example of each of the three influences I discussed above, identifying one from one of the presidents you chose, another from a second president, etc. For example, you might want to discuss Eisenhower within the context of the economy, Truman, in the context of scandal, etc. Because I already identified certain historical examples, you may not choose Clinton's scandal in 1998-99, Nixon and Watergate since it is so well-known, or the rally effect enjoyed by George W. Bush following 9-11 (although there is another "rally" he experienced that you may use if you correctly identify it).
