Billy Graham Remembered Favorably

Most Americans look with favor on the Rev. Billy Graham, the longtime Southern Baptist evangelist and spiritual counselor to several presidents, who died earlier this week.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 58% of American Adults share a favorable view of Graham, with 32% who regard him Very Favorably. Just 22% have an unfavorable view of Graham, including only seven percent (7%) with a Very Unfavorable one. But one-in-five Americans (20%) are undecided.
