George Bush Money Not Exactly America's Favorite Idea, Poll Finds

Apparently Americans are none too eager to see a Bush each time they reach into their wallets for who knows what.

According to a new poll published by Vanity Fair, only 6 percent of Americans would prefer former presidents George H.W. Bush or George W. Bush “to be the face of a new bill.” Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Barack Obama and Ronald Reagan were all more popular choices for the hypothetical honor. For those interested, Reagan took top honors scoring a whopping 38 percent of the vote.

The poll, which asked a variety of questions that garnered some disturbing results -- “Born In The U.S.A.” for the national anthem? Seriously? -- interviewed 1,072 adults between April 18 and 21. You can see the complete poll results over at the Vanity Fair website.

Just to be clear, this was a poll based on a hypothetical question, so don't expect to see Reagan on your greenbacks anytime soon.

Dubya has kept a low profile in the years since he stepped down from office, but recently told HuffPost reporter Jon Ward he was “not surprised” that current President Barack Obama was “having a difficult go” in his second term. The George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum publicly opened last month (see photos below).
