And your favorite president of the last 50 years is …

John F. Kennedy. This according to the responses to a question on a national survey done by Public Policy Polling last week.

Kennedy had a net favorability rating of +59 – with 74 percent of those surveyed expressing approval of Kennedy and 15 percent expressing disapproval. Coming in second was Ronald Reagan – with a net favorability rating of +30 (60 percent approval/30 percent disapproval).

Bill Clinton was a close third with a net favorability rating of +28 (62 percent approval/34 percent disapproval).

Bringing up the rear, not surprisingly, was Richard Nixon, with a net favorability rating of -43 (19 percent approval/62 percent disapproval).

Two other presidents had negative net favorability ratings – Lyndon B. Johnson (36 percent approval/39 percent disapproval) and George W. Bush (41 percent approval/51 percent disapproval).
