Trump Ranks as Worst in Expert Presidential Greatness Survey

How Donald Trump stacks up against the best — and worst — presidents Trump was the worst President of the United States – the media
| 20 February, 2018, 20:47

The survey was conducted by Brandon Rottinghaus, a professor of political science at the University of Houston, and Justin S. Vaughn, an associate professor of political science and director of the Center for Idaho History and Politics at Boise State University.

The survey asked respondents to grade Trump in the following areas: his presidency overall, legislative accomplishments, foreign policy leadership, embodying institutional norms, and communicating with the public.

Trump received a score of 12 out of 100 on the scale.

Buchanan, the country's 15th president, has been criticized for failing to address slavery as the divided United States was on the brink of the Civil War.

At the time of his death, it was reported that he died of pneumonia after refusing to wear a coat during his two-hour inauguration speech.

'Trump's initial rating places him in an ignominious category, but dozens of presidents have had slow starts and have course corrected to improve their public esteem, ' they wrote. Those same Presidents topped the list in the same order when the poll was last conducted in 2014.


James Buchanan has always been considered to be one of the worst presidents in American history, largely due to his inaction when faced with a fiercely divided nation ahead.

Mr. Obama moved from 18th to 8th in the past four years, while Bill Clinton slumped from 5th to 13th.

Trump also "won" the most polarising President, ahead of Andrew Jackson who won the second position.

Among only Republican scholars, Trump still sat in the bottom five presidents.

Yep, Trump ranks dead last, at 45, behind such unloved or barely remembered leaders as James Buchanan, William Henry Harrison, and Franklin Pierce.

Though Trump's approval ratings have hit record lows, he repeatedly denies their validity.
