Honestly, Abe?

According to a recent (Jan. 14-22, 2008) Harris Interactive poll, Americans consider Abraham Lincoln the overall best President of the United States:

Abraham Lincoln: 20% of respondents labeled him "best."
Ronald Reagan: 14%
Franklin Roosevelt: 12%
George Washington: 12% (tie w/ FDR)
John Kennedy: 11%
Bill Clinton: 7%
Thomas Jefferson: 4%
Theodore Roosevelt: 3%
Harry Truman: 2%
George W. Bush: 1% (tie w/ Dwight Eisenhower, Jimmy Carter, & Richard Nixon)
George H.W. Bush: less than 0.5% ( along w/ LBJ, Ford, John Adams, Jackson, Wilson, & Coolidge)

Looks like all that Yankee propaganda paid off.
