"Why is this man so popular?" This question appeared on the cover of Time magazine beside a smiling picture of former President Ronald Reagan. Inside the magazine many facts were presented to help prove that he was indeed very popular in America. According to a Gallup poll taken after six years of his presidency, 68 percent of the American people approved of his leadership, and he had a higher rating over a longer period of time than any other second--term president since such polling began.

The feature article went on to say that he was so popular especially because of the relative success of his presidency, because he was proving to be one of the strongest leaders of the twentieth century, because he restored the prestige and authority of the Office of the Presidency, because of his deep personal authenticity, and because during his term America had an economic recovery lasting over 43 months - the longest in our history.
