Trump takes last spot in experts' presidential rankings survey

Get facts straight on Trump criticism

Donald Trump is the worst American president in history, a panel of political experts has decided.

All presidents were ranked in the 2018 Presidents and Executive Politics Presidential Greatness Survey.

The seven greatest presidents, according to respondents, remained unchanged from the same survey's results in 2014, the previous time it was taken.

Professors Brandon Rottinghaus of the University of Houston and Justin S. Vaughn of Boise State University were the curators of the survey.

The experts added: 'Beyond his reputation or ranking, Donald Trump's very presidency may alter perceptions of presidential legacies as his unique approach to the office continues to surprise'.

"James Buchanan, who was in charge of the country when the United States slid into civil war, lost its position of worst President the current President Trump", - says the publication.

Thus, Lincoln got a rating of 95.03, while Washington got a rating of 92.59. Those same Presidents topped the list in the same order when the poll was last conducted in 2014.

Trump's rating? A lowly 12.34 - or last of 44 different presidents. Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the overwhelming favourite, selected by two-thirds of our respondents. Republican scholars ranked Obama 16th on the list. He surprisingly scored highest for communicating with the public and lowest for embodying institutional norms. The organization established a ranking of all American presidents, rated on a scale of 0 to 100.

However, self-identifying Republicans graded the 45th president higher - three Ds and two Cs.

Barack Obama climbed from 18th to 10th, George W. Bush went from 35th to 30th, and Ronald Reagan now places in the top 10 at ninth.
