    Perhaps the most interesting part of that is Carter coming in at 38 percent favorable.

    What a turnaround.

    I don't see how anyone could say that W or Jimmy Carter were/are above averge presidents.

    You may like either personally but still ...

    Even as a person who thinks Carter got a bum rap on a lot of things, you'd have to put him in the average-to-below-average group, right?

    And then in the top five of alltime ex-presidents.

    That doesn't seem too bad a deal to me.

    Interesting thing about the polarity between the parties that still exists. Republicans asked have all four of their president's ranked ahead of Dems, with Clinton last.

    Democrats think of Carter as being better than Reagan.

    Interesting numbers, although as a Democrat I'll be honest and say there's no way I put Carter above Reagan. As much as I disliked him, Reagan was good for a lot of Americans and his timing was perfect.

    Oh, I'm sure. I would do the same.

    My question would be, is this how people are actually thinking, or have the divisive politics between the two parties caused this type of attitude? I get the feeling if this had been done during Clinton's administration, it would have turned out differently because the party lines are now so set there is a "with us or against us" attitude that's trickled down to the rank and file.

    Totally agree on that one GB.

    In fact, I wonder if the next major "war" in the U.S. is going to be over political divisiness.

    With as far as its gone to this point, it's going to take a lot to bring it back.

    As an issue, it isn't really on the precepice anymore. More like broken in 1,000 pieces at the bottom of the cliff.

    If another civil war breaks out, my ass is heading north.

    I'm not necessarily suggesting a possible civil war, as such, but considering how polarized people have become, you wonder how it will play out.

    With the proliferation of fully armed Wal-Mart's south of the Mason-Dixon, guess who my money's on?
