New Presidential Rankings

Postby AquaMan2342 » Mon Feb 16, 2009 8:21 pm

I don't know how much anybody on here knows about the Presidents, but a group of historians came out with new presidential rankings today.

Article link: http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/02/16/ ... index.html

Poll (far right is newest): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Presidenti ... ey_results

Not surprisingly, Bush ranks pretty low. I would imagine as time goes on his rank will rise, but by how much I couldn't say.

This and Clinton saying he shares no blame for the current financial crisis got me thinking, if Gore won instead of Bush would Clinton be viewed less favorable than he is now after 8 years of Bush?

This was a small part of the logic behind me posting these rankings. I find it funny that Clinton was one of the biggest movers forward to 15 when he is at least as responsible as Bush for the current economic situation. It takes more than eight years for something this massive to happen.

It popped into my head because I think some shine came off of Reagan when the economy went into a recession during George Bush Sr. presidency.

i am glad to see my man JKPolk so highly rated..1848 was a key year in american history and IF polk had been elected to a second term perhaps the horrible run up to the civil war could have been avoided..Polk is a forgotten great one by the general populace..how could anyone forget the great campaign slogan, "we Polk'd 'em in '44 and we'll Pierce 'em in '52" !!

kennedy still over-rated

I didn't really care for the list. Carter and Ford were the bottom 2 imo.

The president doesn't effect the economy as much as people think.

Carter was an aweful president.
Franklin Pierce and James Buchanan pretty much lead to the Civil War, while Andrew Johnson screwed up reconstruction, so those three do deserve their rankings as the bottom 3.

Nixon despite being a terrible person did do some good for the country and was extremely popular before Watergate, so he probably deserves to be higher. especially His "Public Persuasion" ranking (#21) is way off, in 1972 he won every state except Massachusetts.

How is JFK 11th in Moral Authority?
