"The American public tends toward a rush to gush. In February, the Gallup Poll queried the public on how recent presidents, beginning with Richard Nixon, will go down in history. Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton remain the public’s favorites, with 69 percent judging Mr. Reagan as 'outstanding' or 'above average,' and 60 percent saying the same about Mr. Clinton. Whatever their statistical validity, such polls tend to be fabulously misleading, blurring the line between popularity and presidential accomplishment." (03/12/12)
