Poll: Which president is the best/worst since WW II

According to a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday, 33 percent of voters think the current president is the worst since 1945.

Obama’s predecessor, former President George W. Bush, came in at second-worst with 28 percent, and Richard Nixon was in third place with 13 percent of the vote. After Jimmy Carter, who 8 percent of voters said was the worst president in the time period, no other president received more than 3 percent.

Thirty-five percent of voters said Ronald Reagan was the best president since World War II, receiving nearly twice as many votes as any other former president. Bill Clinton came in second place at 18 percent, while John F. Kennedy came in third with 15 percent of the vote and Obama came in fourth with 8 percent saying he was the best.

Every last one of them!

They all sold their souls and screwed this country!

1976-1982 USMC, Having my hands in the soil keeps me from soiling my hands on useless politicians.

Franklin Roosevelt was really

Franklin Roosevelt was really bad. Wasn't he right after WW2? Everything he did was harmful.

The latest guys look the worst because we have the internet to expose everything. Back then, who knows how much crap got swept under the rug.

Tough choice...

They are all pretty bad.

But I sure would like to have seen JFK's second term.

Reagan was pretty good but the Dems had overwhelming majorities in the House for all eight years and controlled the Senate for six of his eight years. It was tough sledding for Ronnie.

LBJ and Nixon were like back to back doses of cyanide and arsenic...definitely the worst.

Obomba and Dumbya are giving them a run for their money though.

The last one will always be the worst.

Because the last administration will have ALL the powers gained by the prior, and while pushing for even more, the new administration will relinquish none.

Did you think that Bush was bad until Obama came along?

Just wait until next time around.

I shudder to think.

Kind of irrelevant poll

People have short memories and are short on facts.

*Truman - setup cold war and permanent militarization.

*Eisenhower and Kennedy - the good guys.

The tipping point for America: LBJ & Nixon.

*LBJ - my vote for worst president ever, I'd say he is the president who set us on the current path of fiscal & moral destruction. Guns & Butter President.
*Nixon - Finished the job for LBJ by taking us off the gold standard and setting up the PetroDollar.

*Ford - ineffectual, debt climbed and inflation grew. One word - Warren Commission.
*Carter - good man but ineffectual, debt climbed and inflation grew as bill for Vietnam and Great Society hit. 21% interest rates.
*Reagan - BIG GOV'T spender, debt soared and inflation grew. HW Bush corrupted his presidency.
*HW Bush - pushed us into the Middle East and kept on spending.
*Clinton - signed our future away to cronyism and setup the RE crash of the 2000's.
*GW Bush - 9/11, war, collapsed economy, bailouts, cronyism.
*Obama - a puppet with ruthless puppet masters. Nobel Peace Prize - joke.

In true POSlitico form

They try to immediately, subconsciously minimize. The story's photo caption states, pro-Obama: "Forty percent of voters polled approve of the job Obama is doing." Instead of the photo caption properly stating that the higher number of 53% disapprove, since that's what this story is about: Obama polled as being the worst. I'll say it again: POSlitico.

Dead Presidents don't lie.

Which one ordered ordered/permitted the killing of the most civilians?

Free includes debt-free!

An interesting poll, but no

An interesting poll, but no one under 50 would have memories of WWII and I doubt they are knowledgeable enough to have an solid opinion.

Having said that, it is a highly visible rebuke of the prez... so I approve.
