Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., is touting President Ronald Reagan to replace Ulysses Grant on the $50 bill, but nearly 8 in 10 Americans nix the idea, a poll indicates, according to a report in the Chicago Tribune.

Eighty-three percent of Democrats oppose the idea and more than 7 in 10 Republicans do not back the switch.
