The weird Reagan Legacy Project

Although they cite the same Gallup numbers, Paul Waldman and Kevin Drum disagree about just how popular Ronald Reagan was. Steve Benen manages to agree with both of them. That is to say, Reagan wasn't particularly popular when he left office, but since then the GOP has actively worked to create the sense that he's wildly popular. No other Republican president has benefitted from such an active PR effort.
