Americans Say Reagan Is the Greatest U.S. President

I love President’s Day as three day weekends this time of year are always welcomed! And to send it off right, I want to share the results of a new Gallup poll that asked Americans who the nation’s great president was. The results were interesting. Now remember, these are just average folks, not scholars, historians and other intellectuals who know better. However, according to the poll “Americans are most likely to say Ronald Reagan was the nation’s greatest president — slightly ahead of Abraham Lincoln and Bill Clinton. Reagan, Lincoln, or John F. Kennedy has been at the top of this “greatest president” list each time this question has been asked in eight surveys over the last 12 years.”

    What surprises me most is that 1% think Jimmy Carter is the greatest President.Maybe that 1% misunderstood the question.

    Yeah, who was that guy? I am surprised Obama didn’t do better, familiarity I would have thought would have placed him higher.
