  • How Donald Trump stacks up against the best — and worst — presidents

A group of more than 170 scholars from the American Political Science Association released a survey today (on Presidents' Day, the national holiday celebrating those who have held the office), which aims to calculate the "greatness" of every USA president.

"Donald Trump is by far the most polarising of the ranked presidents", poll authors Brandon Rottinghaus and Justin Vaughn wrote.

We will remind, nearly half a year of his presidency Donald trump's approval rating of his work among Americans has fallen to 37%, which was a new record among all the presidents of the United States a year after taking office over the past 70 years.

Each member was asked to rank the current and past presidents from zero (worst) to 100 (best). Beyond his reputation or ranking, Donald Trump's very presidency may alter perceptions of presidential legacies as his unique approach to the office continues to surprise.

According to the survey, Democratic scholars rank Trump dead last among all presidents, while Republican scholars rank him ahead of only Andrew Johnson, Franklin Pierce, James Buchanan and William Henry Harrison - the president who infamously died after only one month on the job.

President George Washington remained atop the list in the #1 spot among Republicans.

Buchanan, who was America's 15th president, oversaw the debate over slavery and saw the Union split apart after his successor, Abraham Lincoln, was elected. Franklin D. Roosevelt was third, Teddy Roosevelt was fourth and Thomas Jefferson was fifth.

Trump was a newcomer to the survey, which was conducted from December 22, 2017, to January 16 of this year, and prior to that in 2014. Reagan also moved into the top 10, ranking ninth.

However, self-identifying Republicans graded the 45th president higher - three Ds and two Cs.
