           Experts Agree Trump Is Already The Worst President Ever

US President Donald Trump came in last in the 2018 Presidents and Executive Politics Presidential Greatness Survey, released by professors of US University of Houston and Boise State University.

Trump was rated worse than President Richard Nixon, who quit under pressure from the Watergate scandal, ranking as 33rd.

It's President's Day in the USA, and to celebrate the occasion a group of academics have banded together to rank Trump as the worst president of all time.

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.

The poll quizzed "current and recent members of the Presidents & Executive Politics Section of the American Political Science Association", described as "the foremost organization of social science experts in presidential politics".

If you're thinking that Trump's lowly ranking is a wee bit premature after only a year and change in office, you're not alone.

"Trump's initial rating places him in an ignominious category, but dozens of presidents have had slow starts and have course corrected to improve their public esteem, " Rottinghaus and Vaughn wrote. Trump managed to beat James Buchanan among Republican pollsters.

That's lower than the guy who was in charge as we headed into the Civil War and also the other guy who was Prez for 32 days before he died of pneumonia. Wow. George Washington was second, at 92.59.

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.

Bill Clinton and Andrew Jackson both fell from their previous spots in the top 10 to Nos.

They were asked to rate each president on a scale of zero to 100, and then the scores were averaged together for each president. Self-identifying Republicans scored Trump with three Ds and two Cs.
