Chris Matthews Furious About Poll Showing Reagan As America’s Favorite President

(By Matt Schneider, Mediaite) - Every year in honor of Presidents Day, Gallup conducts a poll where they ask Americans who is the greatest United States president? This year’s results revealed Ronald Reagan as the favorite choice among Americans and Chris Matthews was none too pleased, dismissing the poll as just a “memory quiz.”

Matthews was disgusted with the idea of so many recent presidents being listed, as even President Obama made the list at number seven. Yet Matthews was clearly most disturbed when speaking about the supposedly greatest president:

“The greatest president in history according to the American people with their limited memory is Ronald Reagan. Keep in mind these are not historian rankings, these are peoples. By the way you should insist, before anybody participates in one of these ridiculous polls – please list the presidents and then pick the best. Don’t just go with the ones you can remember. It’s like the greatest movie of all time was the one I just went to.”
