We ought to be able to move Obummer off 2.82% if the poll isn't rigged.

Their historian survey is rather stupid as well-- putting William Henry Harrison in the top 10 because he died after a month in office and bashing Millard Fillmore over the Missouri Compromise. What was Fillmore supposed to do? Start the Civil War a decade early? Also, the compromise came out of congress. In those days, the presidents were supposed to preside, not be dictators!

That poll shows how many domestic enemies we have. We have as many wackjobs here right now as there are in the Middle East. The seething hatred illustrated by comments on YouTube and in polls like this show the vile hatred that exists in our country. In my opinion, it’s more vile than during the Civil War, That’s scary. You are seeing the byproduct of Liberal brainwashing in our public schools that has been taking place since 1980; look to the NEA and Leftish professors and brainwashed teachers. The rest of the hatred being fostered comes from the Leftist MSM.

Gotta go with James Buchanan on this one. Administration led right into the American Civil War, by far the worst calamity in our history.

I think George will eventually rank in the top ten.....When we get rid of this Pro-Dem media and look at things like MORALS, LOVE OF COUNTRY, CALLING EVIL...EVIL, PROTECTING US (PATRIOT ACT). He did what a President was supposed to do.

Obama has done nothing but wreak havoc...Ft Hood, the Panty bomber......Neither should have happened...period. "Cept...you gotta do a lot of PC when you're born and raised Muslim.

It is pretty obvious the 20 something Bush haters (anti-American)have rigged the poll.
As long as the results are this lopsided it can’t be valid. Even H Hoover isn’t in the running.

I find it interesting that Grover Cleveland, the last great president which the Democrat party produced, was a Princeton Trustee post presidency and he absolutely could not stand Woodrow Wilson.

The problem is, there are SO many bad Democrat presidents to choose from! Sure, Obama is responsible for the current efforts to abolish our freedom and destroy our economy but is he really any worse than Carter, LBJ, James Buchanan, Woodrow Wilson?....

Who cares. This is a dim-wit site. Any bunch of fools that voted Washington, Adams(both), Jefferson, Madison, etc. as worse are all idiots anyway. Someone actually took the time to select George Washington or John Adams or Madison as the worse president of all time!!!! Lord have mercy. What idiots have ignored history over the past 230 years???

It is not a scientific poll, plus it does not display vote count and lets people vote as many times as they want.

It started long before 1980. It was in full operational mode by 1970 or so.

Gotta go with James Buchanan on this one.

As do I! That man was incompetent on so many levels as to be a poster child for the definition.

Really, to be properly done, this kind of poll needs to separate the "Moderns" from the "Historical" and NOT include the immediate past POTUS. Election propaganda and biases require time to settle out. Reagan was at the bottom of many early 1990 polls, especially as the Clinton/Gore ticket ran so hard against "the past 12 years".

My vote for the "Moderns" would probably be Carter for his feckless idiocy on both the economy and foreign affairs. A good argument could be made that he made modern Afghanistan by being so weak that the Soviet Union felt embolden. However I cannot stop without mentioning Wilson as #2 or #3 in the worsts. The Democrats used to honor him in Jackson-Wilson-FDR Dinners but I think that the knowledge of his anti-negro, anti civil rights and disastrous foreign affairs has made even them to rethink.

It's easy to demonstrate just how ridiculous this "poll" is, by turning it around.

One would assume that inverting the rankings, with lowest percentages being highest and descending from there, would provide a rational list of the best Presidents.

That's obviously not the case, here. If it were, some of our best Presidents were the most obscure and unremarkable.

If Obama can qualify for the Nobel Prize before his first Presidential Order, then you might want to re-think the damage potential this Pretender in Chief has. He has been there less than a year and he has destroyed our industry, spent our sovereignty and diminished our freedoms. Where do you suppose that calamity will lead? As wrong as he was at least Buchanan was trying to save the country.
