Ronald Reagan on Mount Rushmore
During the last election in the USA, Ronald Reagan, once a Democrat who defected to the Republicans, was used by both sides of a shining example of what a President should be.
It was common throughout the campaign for both sides to quote him, posthumously second guessing his thoughts on their tactics, and hail him as the best ever modern leader of the free world.
With that in mind, at the weekend we ran a poll. Would you like to add Ronald Reagan to Mount Rushmore?
36% said Yes, 60% said No and 4% were undecided.
It is worth noting that during discussions, some who voted no, said that they had done so as they believe the monument should remain unaltered. Others said in 200 years, whilst Washington and Lincoln would still be relevant, Reagan might be forgotten... and others just plain didn't like the idea.
Thanks for taking part.
