Abstract

The American Presidency Project provides presidential job approval poll results. These data are available for each U.S. president since President Franklin D. Roosevelt and for all the job approval polls conducted. The proposed Stata command, approval, downloads these presidential approval poll results in its original format, an HTML table. The approval then parses the HTML table and prepares the data as a usable Stata dataset.

Keywords: presidential job approval, presidential popularity, U.S. presidents, parse HTML
