Most See Barbara Bush As Good Role Model

Friday, April 20, 2018

Americans hold a solidly favorable opinion of former first lady Barbara Bush who died earlier this week, and most think she set a good example for others to follow.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 79% of American Adults have a favorable view of the woman who was both the wife of President George H.W. Bush and the mother of President George W. Bush, including 50% who share a Very Favorably one. Just nine percent (9%) have a somewhat or Very Unfavorable opinion of Mrs. Bush. Eleven percent (11%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
