The annual Presidents & Executive Politics Presidential Greatness Survey results have been released for 2018, and the survey has placed President Trump at the very bottom of their list.
The survey is a joint project by the University of Houston and the Boise State University, and was conducted from December 22, 2017 to January 16, 2018. A total of 320 respondents were invited to participate, and 170 “usable responses were received,” the survey stated. Respondents were all current and recent members of the Presidents & Executive Politics Section of the American Political Science Association.
The Hill reported:
Abraham Lincoln topped the list with an average score of 95.03, followed by George Washington with 92.59. The top seven spots remained unchanged from when the survey was conducted last in 2014.
Former President Barack Obama placed eighth on the list, with an average score of 71.13, jumping 10 places from the previous survey.
Trump took the bottom spot with an average score of 12.34. Among those who identified as Republicans and conservatives, Trump took the 40th spot.
Obama came in second place when respondents were asked who should be the next president on Mount Rushmore, though he was well behind runaway favorite Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
Former President Reagan was ranked in 9th place, behind Obama.
