JFK back at No. 1, per latest Zogby poll

Kennedy bumps Roosevelt from top of Presidential Greatness Scale

New Zogby International poll shows Reagan in third place; Ford, Johnson ‘most mediocre’; Nixon a ‘failure’

President Kennedy, enjoying a surge of fresh popularity among Americans who have rated him the greatest President of the modern era, surged past Franklin D. Roosevelt for the first time since early 2002, a new Zogby International poll shows."

Richard Reeve's recent bio of Reagan, which suggests that his final illness affected ole Rawhide's final years in office, may have filtered into broad public awareness and thus Reagan has dropped in the presidential standings.

JFK rightly remains the hero of the baby boomers and now the boomers pass the torch to their children.

It seems the public does not believe what Tim Gratz says about him. BTW it shows how charitable Americans are in calling Lyndon Johnson (Hey, Hey, LBJ, how msany kids..........) merely mediocre.

Ray,

Interesting poll. It shows that the media's efforts to dumb down the people have not been successful.

JFK and FDR are way in front in the greatness category. LBJ and Ford deservedly own the mediocrity segment but its interesting that while Nixon currently leads the "failure" category at 47%, George W Bush appears to be rapidly overhauling him at 40% and still with nearly 3 years to run. I say he can crack the magical 50% mark by term's end. Come on Dubya, my money's riding on you, old fella!!!!!
