And the best and worst list goes as follows.

The Best:

Ronald Reagan (35%)

Bill Clinton (18%)

John F. Kennedy (15 %)

The poll also asked if America would be better off if Republican Mitt Romney had won the 2012 presidential election, 45-percent of voters said yes while 38-percent said the country would be worse off.

“Would Mitt have been a better fit? More voters in hindsight say yes,” says Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll.
