Poll - Ronald Reagan is the greatest, Obama the worst

There Was No Contest
Comrade Obama is forced to eat Ronald Reagan's dust.

Former President Ronald Reagan has edged out Franklin D. Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy as the nation’s greatest president in over a century, and President Obama was rated the biggest failure by a sizable margin over George W. Bush, Richard Nixon and Jimmy Carter, according to a new poll.

The YouGov/Economist rankings just released found that more adults, 32 percent, put “the Gipper” in the “great” category. Of the 1,000 polled, FDR followed at 31 percent and JFK at 30 percent. Just 14 percent rated Obama as great says the Washington Examiner.

Instead, 37 percent graded Obama a “failure,” more than Bush at 32 percent, Nixon at 30 percent and Jimmy Carter at 22 percent.

The survey looked at presidents since Theodore Roosevelt, the first of the 20th century. Those surveyed were asked to rate each president in six categories: great, near great, average, below average, failure, and don’t know.

Presidents Rated "Great" in Poll
Of Presidents since 1900 only eight in the poll recorded double digits as being great.
Scoring the highest as "Great" was Ronald Reagan with 32% followed in descending order by FDR, Kennedy, Clinton, Theodore Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower and then Obama.
