Oh Geez: University Of Maryland Students Cannot Identify Ronald Reagan

MRCTV’s Dan Joseph had a little thought experiment this week. He ventured onto the campus of the University of Maryland to ask students if they recognized one of the best presidents to ever occupy the Oval Office–Ronald Reagan.

With a paddle covered with Reagan pictures, Joseph found students who had no clue who our 40th president was–one student said the picture on the paddle was “George Bush.” Other guesses were “a country singer, John Wayne, Kenny Rogers, and Bush’s dad.”

Granted, a few students were able to name President Reagan. One student was surprised when Joseph told them nearly half the people he spoke with did not know who he was, while another said she would believe that.

Should Joseph do similar experiments by showing folks pictures of Presidents Kennedy, Clinton, or Lincoln?
