In 1998, the Washington National Airport in Arlington, VA was renamed Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport – and local Democrats are still bitter about it.
The Washington Post recently conducted a survey of Washington, DC area residents, asking them what they prefer to call the busy airport. The results show that while younger people tend to call it by its current title, Reagan National, older, liberal commuters refuse to utter the name of the conservative president. In total, 72 percent of Republicans surveyed said they refer to it as ‘Reagan’ or ‘Reagan National,’ while only 35 percent of Democrats acknowledged the airport by that name.
Survey participant Jason West’s eloquent explanation perhaps says it all.
