New poll of historians on presidents

The hardest president to evaluate in my lifetime is Lyndon Johnson. Johnson was great domestically – voting rights, civil rights, Medicare, Medicaid. He was bad in foreign policy – the Vietnam war. Johnson had courage politically. He knew the civil rights laws would cost the Democrats in the South but they were the right thing to do.

I don’t get what people see in Reagan. To me, he was a slightly less bad version of Trump.
