Was Crocodile stronger at Marineford? Or was he holding back in Alabasta?

 During the Alabasta arc, Crocodile displayed a level of power that was initially considered overwhelming by the Straw Hat Pirates. He possessed the Logia-type Devil Fruit called the Suna Suna no Mi (Sand-Sand Fruit), which granted him the ability to control and transform into sand. He had a reputation as a Shichibukai and controlled the desert kingdom of Alabasta from the shadows. His strength was showcased through his battles with Luffy and others. At Marineford, Crocodile was present as part of the war that took place at Marine Headquarters. While he did participate in the battle, he didn't display the same level of dominance as some other powerful characters present. This has led fans to speculate that he might not have been as strong as initially portrayed in Alabasta. It's important to note that power scaling and character abilities can be subject to interpretation and development by the author. Oda often keeps details deliberately open-ended to keep the story intriguing.

How does George W. Bush's approval rating compare to other presidents at this point in their terms?

 It's difficult for me to accurately compare George W. Bush's approval rating to other presidents at this point in their terms, as my knowledge is based on information that was available up until 2021, and I don't have access to current events or information on current approval ratings.

In general, a president's approval rating can fluctuate over the course of their term in office, and can be influenced by a variety of factors such as the state of the economy, foreign policy events, and the president's handling of crises or other challenges. It is not uncommon for a president's approval rating to decline over time, as they are faced with difficult decisions and challenges that may not be popular with all segments of the population.

It's important to note that approval ratings are just one measure of a president's performance and are not the only factor that should be considered when evaluating their time in office. Other factors, such as the president's policy achievements and their impact on the country, should also be taken into account when assessing their tenure.
