I'm a little surprised at how low Columbus rated. I thought he was something of a folk hero in the USA. I'm aware that in recent times there has been a trend to describing him as a conqueror who brought misery to the native populations of the Americas, but I didn't think that was a majority opinion. Of course it may simply be that everyone thinks most of the other options were just plain more interesting.
