Survey Ranks US Presidents On 'Overall Greatness'

How Donald Trump stacks up against the best — and worst — presidents

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 ranked No. 44 - last place - with a score of 12.34.

More than 57 percent of the respondents - current and recent members of the Presidents and Executive Politics Section of the American Political Science Association - were Democrats, while 13 percent were Republicans and 27 percent were Independents.

Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Teddy Roosevelt in order took the top four spots in the Boise State University "Presidential Greatness Survey".

"Donald Trump is by far the most polarising of the ranked presidents", poll authors Brandon Rottinghaus and Justin Vaughn, wrote.

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

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

But she is not me, I've never had to do that", Omarosa said. "I don't understand why people don't think that she's sharp". The former White House staffer also revealed what it was like to work with the former House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

He's the greatest at being the worst, according to a new poll. Despite this, the survey's researchers note "dozens of presidents have had slow starts and have course corrected to improve their public esteem", and that Trump's presidency "may alter perceptions of presidential legacies as his unique approach to the office continues to surprise". The top seven slots remained unchanged from when the survey was conducted last in 2014. Only Andrew Jackson dropped more - down six places - possibly owing to increased attention on how he treated Native Americans.

Even Republican raters put Trump among the worst presidents at No. 4.

Meanwhile, across party lines, Democrats ranked Obama ten places higher than Republicans, while Reagan was ranked nine places higher by GOP experts than their liberal counterparts.

Mr Trump was accompanied in the bottom five by Andrew Johnson, Franklin Pierce, William Harrison, and Mr Buchanan.

Although he is the 45th president, Trump was rated as 44th best, which was the lowest ranking because the survey did not count Grover Cleveland's nonconsecutive terms separately.

The rating was the same percentage of registered voters who approved of the job he's done in office.
