In this hot political season, two dead presidents are battling for ticket sales and the Gipper has overtaken Honest Abe. For the first time since it opened in 2005, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield is no longer the nation's most visited presidential museum. Ronald Reagan's museum in Simi Valley, California, has surpassed it.

Staff at the Lincoln Library (pictured) say they are formulating a plan to close the attendance gap.
