John Farrell has a lower disapproval rating in Massachusetts than Mother Teresa and Santa Claus

The Boston Red Sox are 20-8 and on top of the baseball world after a disastrous 2012 season under Bobby Valentine. The team revamped themselves this offseason, and a new manager was brought in: former Boston pitching coach John Farrell. The Sox won their 20th game last season under Bobby Valentine on May 20th, and collapsed in the second half with a 26-50 record.

In Massachusetts, fans are in love with the new look Sox led by Farrell. In fact, only 1% of people disapprove of Farrell, according to Public Policy Polling, the third most accurate polling firm in November's presidential election.

That's pretty noteworthy. A 1% disapproval rating is stellar. But just how good is it, really?

Holy crap. Less people disapprove of John Farrell in Massachusetts than the first president of the United States, the most admired person of the 20th century, a non-violent peace advocate, and one of the most beloved fictional characters in history. Great company, indeed.
