    Why change the $10 ? Hamilton is the founder of the US Financial System. Would Mrs. Roosevelt be better on the $20?

    The first 2 choices are fine with me, but Sacagawea’s people were here before any of us. Was Helen Keller even considered?

    In that it has taken so long to add a woman to our paper money, and the opportunity to add another is anyone’s guess, why not do a collage of the top three women?

    why not Abigail Adams since she influence both John and Thomas (John was never properly accredited for his role in starting America. My second choice would be Dolly Madison whose clear head saved some historic treasures when the British burned down Washington DC.

    I have no idea how you “scientifically ” selected the respondents to this poll, but you are so absolutely out of touch with the anyone I know, it is laughable. Did you only speak to Democrats?
