Worst President? Historians–Fair and Balanced May 31, 2007

Posted by skinbad in History, Politics.

I have a book on hand titled Rating the Presidents (2000). Over 700 historians were polled. The presidents received a ranking from 1-41 in the following areas:

  • Leadership qualities
  • Accomplishments and crisis management
  • Political skill
  • Appointments
  • Character and integrity

From these scores, an overall ranking was given. Top ten are: Lincoln, F. Roosevelt, Washington, Jefferson, T. Roosevelt, Wilson, Truman, Jackson, Eisenhower, and Madison.

Clinton is 23rd. Reagan is 26th. Carter is 19th.

Carter ranked higher than Reagan in “Accomplishment and crisis management.” Clinton ranked higher than Reagan in “Character and integrity.” FYI.
