Another reason Ronald Reagan is awesome. In a recent poll by Gallup, Americans polled ranked their top Presidents in history. As you can see below, I posted a video of MSNBC's Chris Matthews commenting on this poll and he clearly doesn't like the notion that Ronald Reagan was #1. Obama was #7. He even went as much to say "Americans with their limited memory...". Limited memory? Really? In the top 7, Lincoln was #2, JFK was #4, Washington was #5 and FDR was #6. With the exception of JFK, the other 3 aren't anytime recent. Especially when Lincoln was listed at #2.
Chris Matthews just doesn't like anyone who doesn't agree with him (like most Democrats/Progressives) and he always feels he's right. Well the American public got this one right.
Via Gallup: Ahead of Presidents Day 2011, 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.
