Experts Have Definitively Ranked Trump The Worst US President Of All Time

President Donald Trump came in last with an "overall greatness" rating of 12.34.

The poll quizzed "current and recent members of the Presidents & Executive Politics Section of the American Political Science Association", described as "the foremost organization of social science experts in presidential politics".

Silver made the astute point that presidents who had directly led us into the Great Depression and Civil War may be worse than Trump after a year BUT I politely disagree, Nate.

Abraham Lincoln was in first place, followed by George Washington in second and Franklin D Roosevelt in third. The celebration of Washington's Birthday, also known as Presidents' Day, took place in the United States on Monday.

We surveyed presidential politics experts to sketch out a first draft of Trump's place in presidential history.

And there have been some BAD presidents.

Just over 57 percent of those polled identified as Democrats, while 13 percent were Republican and 27 percent, Independents. Those presidents' ranks remained unchanged from 2014. Trump doesn't get much of a lift from Republican-only vote: "Even in their eyes, he's a bottom-five president".

His Oval Office predecessor, Barack Obama, shot into the top 10, up from 18th in the previous survey.

The president received three Fs and two Ds, scoring his highest grade in communicating with the public and his lowest on embodying institutional norms. Ronald Reagan moved from 11th up to 9th in the ranking, while Bill Clinton fell from 8th to 13th.

Also, Republicans are super into some dude named William McKinley, who was assassinated while in office and led the country through the Spanish-American War.

Trump was rated worse than President Richard Nixon, who quit under pressure from the Watergate scandal, ranking as 33rd.
