Every 4 years "200 top political scientists" rank all of our presidents, and this time Trump took home the bottom spot, supplanting Buchanon as the worst president ever. 

In the years that George W. Bush has been out of office, he's been doing a bang-up job as he continues to climb with each list and rose another 5 places to 30th all-time.

We're so nostalgic for the days when Obama bombed Muslim countries that he's leaped 10 places to 8th all-time!

The top 7 remains unchanged from the last poll in 2014: Lincoln, Washington, FDR, Teddy Roosevelt, Jefferson, Truman, and Eisenhower (how they came up with that top 7 I have no idea because Jefferson is the only one who belongs).

It should be terrifying that "200 top political scientists", whatever qualifies them in that regard, are so bipolar and reactive.  The list shouldn't really change that much and there's no way Bush and Obama should be climbing the list just because these pussies want to throw a temper tantrum because they don't like Trump.  And to rank a guy dead last, behind someone who started the Civil War, who has barely done anything of substance one way or the other except tweet, and has only been in office for a year, is just ridiculous.  If you polled random retards on the street you would get a similar list.

I assume if you can name all 45 presidents without looking it up, you are either one of the 200 top political scientists or a naturalized immigrant.

I'm pretty sure I could do it, but once we get into the 1820s-1840s I might lose the order a little. 

I guarantee if you ask the average American a yes/no question and GIVE them some names, they wouldn't have any better than a 50-50 chance of telling you if they were a president or not.  Probably 90% of Americans think Benjamin Franklin and Alexander Hamilton were Presidents and 95% have never, ever heard the names Franklin Pierce and Chester Arthur.

Sarah Palin thought John Adams and John Quincy Adams were the same person.

I think she's also the one who said her favorite Founding Father was Lincoln.

I'd like to see the ex-Presidents come out with their ranking of the top 200 political "scientists".

I rank it by how many kids were murdered per capita under each president's time in office.

Just American kids or kids around the world?  Because no one murdered more kids than Bush and Obama (although Trump still has time to get there).

We'll go with all kids, since attacking sovereign nations who haven't staged a war vs the US is pretty much just abitrary killing for the sake of dick waving.

Both nuclear bombs probably killed more children, especially long term. And don't forget Vietnam, the Injuns and... do I even want to know how many 5 digit numbers of children of any country where killed during any presidential term? That would probably end up a pretty depressing list.

Anyways, I am fascinated that so many have seemingly forgotten the 2007 crisis already. You have to be pretty pathetic in order for people to forget how shitty the mood was back then. Beautifully pathetic. Bigly pathetic. The best.

Yeah, I have Obama, Bush, Nixon, LBJ, and Truman in my top 5 for kiddie body counts.  I don't think it was possible for even someone like Andrew Jackson to have killed nearly as many with the technology he had.

There are some I only know from the Simpsons' Mediocre Presidents song.

From that I know William Henry Harrison died in 30 days.

I just took the Sporcle quiz out of curiosity and I couldn't think of 2 of them.  No spoilers but it was 1849-1850 and 1877-1881.

26 out of 45 (got them all back to the 40’s then missed a bunch until I got to Washington, Lin and a few others) but who gives a shit I’m not a history teacher or a person who discusses politics in a social setting and even if I was what difference would it make you can look up everything you want on the internet.
