And, sure enough, there were differences.
Once again, I’ll dispense with listing the no votes. That brings us to the US Presidents that were “cited, but not by many”:
William Henry Harrison
George W. Bush
The “second tier” favorites included:
5.7% - Thomas Jefferson
5.0% - Harry Truman
3.6% - John Adams
As for the top five favorite US Presidents,
#5 was John F. Kennedy, chosen by 6.4%
#4 was George Washington, chosen by 6.7%
Coming in at #3 was Franklin Delano Roosevelt, with 10.7%.
#2 on the list of favorites – an all the more impressive showing since he was also the top of the “most want to have a cold beverage with” list – was Abraham Lincoln, cited by 22.1%
But top of our readers most favorite US President list was… Ronald Reagan, cited by a full 24.3%.
