    If you look at election figures -- electoral college or the so-called "popular vote" -- Reagan was pretty damned popular: moreso than any other President in the 20th century, apart from FDR. And that's a much better metric than approval ratings, which, aside from being unreliable from a data standpoint, don't even speak to popularity, specifically.

    What is popularity? I could well end up on the negative side of Bush's approval rating on a given week, but I still plan to vote for him, and I like him well enough.
