America is a center-right nation...really? Why did voters (in a nationwide survey by Rasmussen Reports) just elect Franklin Roosevelt over Ronald Reagan in a political dream match-up, by a solid margin?
But 40% say Reagan, the Republican champion of small-government conservatism and the winner of the Cold War, was a better president. Fifteen percent (15%) aren’t sure which of the two they like better in a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.
For a plurality of all voters (43%), however, it’s still best to describe a political candidate as being like Reagan. Twenty-six percent (26%) see it as a negative, while 29% regard it as somewhere in between.
Sounds like a good idea for a book.
