Survey: Obama Ranked 15th Best President, Bush 39th
President Obama ranks 15th on a new survey of the best American presidents, slightly higher than any other recent president.
Researchers at Siena College in New York polled 238 presidential scholars, asking them to rate all 43 U.S. presidents in 19 categories—from imagination and integrity to their accomplishments in foreign and domestic policy.
Study director Douglas Lonnstrom says Mr. Obama’s predecessors all started out in the middle range, around number 20.
Siena College has conducted the survey since 1982. It’s always done one year after a new president takes office.
