Poll shows Eleanor Roosevelt a favorite for the new $10 bill

9 posts in this topic

More than one in four Americans are hoping the soon-to-be redesigned $10 bill will feature Eleanor Roosevelt, according to a McClatchy-Marist poll released Wednesday.

The poll showed the former first lady in first place with 27 percent, trailed by African-American abolitionist Harriet Tubman, who received 17 percent of 1,249 votes, and Native American explorer Sacagawea, who received 13 percent.

Who will replace Alexander Hamilton on the bill has been the subject of much debate since Treasury Secretary Jack Lew announced in June it will be the first in more than a century to feature a woman.

The announcement followed a social media campaign “Women on 20s.” The government then announced it would put a woman on the 10-dollar bill, spawning another online discussion led by the hashtag “#TheNew10.”

I vote for Ida Tarbell...from the days when we still had a free press.

Starting in November 1902, Ida Tarbell wrote a series of 19 carefully researched articles in McClure's Magazine. She detailed how John D. Rockefeller ruthlessly forced his competitors to "sell or perish." She correctly identified railroad discounts, specifically outlawed by the Interstate Commerce Act of 1887, as key to creating Rockefeller's Standard Oil monopoly.

Now you're pulling our leg. A truth-teller on a Federal Reserve note. :biggrin:

Michelle Obama has a better chance getting her face on a $27.08 bill. A much better chance.

While they are changing faces on our money, how about we change all the money into rainbow colors too? LOL

Ida Tarbell.
I've never heard of her but that's a badass name.
She has my vote!

Rosa Parks wasn't what she's portrayed to be.She was an activist and worked for the NAACP.
Plus she wasn't the first black woman to refuse to move.

already heard that. And I also knew that there was another lady that did it before her in New York city. But that matters not one wit to me it is her public persona I was concerned with.

Virginia Dare, the first 'American'

Born in 1587, she was the first child of English parents to be born on the American continent. She breathed her first in the short-lived colony known as Roanoke, now an island in the state of North Carolina. The date of her death is unknown but she has become a cult figure, featuring prominently in Carolinian folklore, in children’s books and used as a marketing tool for local produce. It is unlikely that she lived very long as the colony did not survive until her third birthday. When her grandfather returned, he found the colony deserted and never saw her or her parents again.
