Bipartisan is not a word that comes up frequently when talking about Patrick McHenry, but he's gotten Democrats and Republicans to agree on something. They're both opposed to his proposal to replace Ulysses Grant on the $50 bill with Ronald Reagan.
67% of voters in the state are opposed to the idea with 16% favoring it. There's not a single demographic group we track that supports the change. Even conservatives split against it by a 54/26 margin, as do Republicans at 52/27.
It's not that North Carolinians dislike Reagan. A poll we conducted last year found he was the state's favorite out of the last five Presidents. But Grant did, you know, kind of help keep the country together by leading the Union to victory in the Civil War and even we here in the old Confederacy seem to appreciate that.
And maybe most importantly in a time when 53% of North Carolinians name jobs and the economy as the most critical issue to them switching up the President on the $50 bill doesn't rank as a particularly high priority.
