10 Worst US President: George W. doesn’t come in first?


As time passes, a former President’s ratings and reputation tends to get better, so we expect a recent C-SPAN poll to change in the coming years. However, as it stands now, George W. Bush is rated as the 7th worst of all-time. Who’s worse, you ask? That honor goes to James Buchanan, the President before Abraham Lincoln.

In the eight years since this survey was last taken, Bill Clinton jumped from 21st-best president to 15th.
