Importing presidential approval poll results

The American Presidency Project (http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu) 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 since his presidency. In this article, we propose the Stata command approval, which downloads these approval poll results in their original format, an HTML table. approval then parses the HTML table and prepares the data as a usable Stata dataset.
