Time Magazine’s spin on this might be that Reagan and Obama are tied for first, because as you know, aside from their views on big government, national defense, abortion, appeasement and wealth transfer, they’re virtually indistinguishable.

Here’s the full list:

1. Ronald Reagan (19%)
2. Abraham Lincoln (14%)
3. Bill Clinton (13%)
4. John F. Kennedy (11%)
5. George Washington (10%)
6. Franklin Roosevelt (8%)
7. Barack Obama (5%)
8. No opinion (5%)
9. Theodore Roosevelt (3%)
10. Harry Truman (3%)
11. George W. Bush (2%)
12. Thomas Jefferson (2%)
13. **Jimmy Carter (1%)
14. Dwight Eisenhower (1%)
15. George H. W. Bush (1%)
16. Other(1%)
17. None (1%)
18. Andrew Jackson (0%)
19. Lyndon Johnson (0%)
20. Richard Nixon (0%)

**Carter poll results have a margin of error of plus or minus Hamas

Here’s how it broke down along party lines:

null

After the hype of 2008 and 2009, would you have thought that within a couple of years Democrats would choose two other presidents from their party as greater than Barack Obama?
