Most Popular Presidents in U.S. History


The Top TenXW

1John F. Kennedy

John Fitzgerald Kennedy knew there were conspiracies within the US government. He was on his way to exposing them. That is why this wonderful man was taken from us so early. As was his brother Bobby whose intentions were the same. To expose the corrupted politicians that sought to destroy our country. He had great dreams for the US, dreams his son wanted to go forth with and yet again he was taken also. There will never be another like JFK.

Truly a world leader, admired not only in his country but all of the world, from Northern Ireland to deepest Africa. JFK was once of a kind and the US will never heal the searing wound that his premature death brought.

A conflicted man for sure but one who despite his privileged life understood the responsibilities of the office as few have since.

Ranking every modern president

2Abraham Lincoln

The way he handled the civil war, no other would have done that

Lincoln was a strong guy he was a great wrestler if he saw booth he would of killed that coward thank you for freeing us - Jackhammer619

Lincoln should be on number one. He was president during Civil War, he president during bad time. He did lot of things for USA. Lincoln is the best.

For me he will always be the best

3Ronald Reagan

Ronald Reagan always had America's best interest at heart. He made us proud to be Americans. Creating millions of jobs and taking us out of the darkness that was caused by inflation and infighting. The word's that echo in my ears still today are "tear down this wall" and so it was the Berlin wall came down. He was always so respectful of his military and so proud of them. He was a good one, better then most. Wished we had another like him.

Reagan did not think he would ever become President but he took to the role and excelled. Guided by Godly principles, he returned the trust of the people and left America better after 8 years, fighting inflation, creating millions of jobs and connecting people for freedom. Other leaders at that time could only ask about the "American miracle".

This is not really an opinion because according to an average person Reagan is the best. Bush serously more than 1/2 of the people hate him. Lincoln is popular today but not then he was president. Obama is the worst president (along w/ Bush) we had yet. - russian

Reagan has charisma, cool guy, smarter ideas and a bravest leader

4Bill Clinton

No disrespect to Ronald Reagan, but how in the world he is ahead of Bill Clinton--how even Clinton is not in first place to begin with is beyond me!

Only president control middle east with out war and Palestine freedom independent... Real grade leader

Charm, wit, and an amazing personality, ha the ability to connect with people from all walks of life.

Along with all of his great qualities he graduated from Georgetown University!

5Franklin D. Roosevelt

He was elected 4 times, no other served the U S that length of time and in that span of time did an outstanding job as President.

He led the entire nation out of America's great depression. I think that says enough about this amazing man.

FDR was so popular that he was elected to four consecutive terms. His liberal policies not only helped America defeat the Nazis in WWII, but it gave us out strongest economy in history. FDR's programs from the New Deal, for example social security, are even still in widespread impacting use today. FDR wasn't only one of the best presidents ever, he was among the best leaders in the world.

Elected four times, which tells you how much people liked him

6George Washington

Only Abraham Lincoln had the influence on our nation. Popularity is over rated. My vote went to the man who I believe was the greatest President of our Nations History. All had faults, all had strengths.

I love how he was the first president of the United States and how he was president for eight years. I love him. He is My idol. He is the best president. He might be number two. But he is Number one in your heart!

After all he was the first president and who build the nation. He also build up the nation piece by piece until it reaches the full potential which is now known as United States of America.

WHY IS THIS MAN NOT IN THE TOP 5, we owe our freedom to this man, this is a disgrace.

7Barack Obama

He's told 10 times as many lies as Nixon and Clinton combined. What a joke of a man, and a joke of a leader. I'm his boss. I'm an American. I'd fire him.

1. The first non-white President.
2. Appointed two females to The Supreme Court.
3. Saved the country from a depression.
4. Inherited two unfunded/unnecessary wars.
5. Re-elected with 50% of the popular vote.
6. Forced to work against a race-biased GOP opposition and media.

No he is not worth a rating

I believe that accomplished a lot

8Theodore Roosevelt

An incredibly tough person, who survived an assassination attempt during a campaign speech, and with the bullet lodged against his ribs, still finished up the speech before going to the hospital. A shame we have nobody like that today.

Leader who accomplished much. Panama Canal, Our national parks, building up our navy, making the United States a dominant force in the world. Was a likeable, witty person, who told it like it was.

How is Barack Obama ahead of this guy? Anyone ever heard of the Rough Riders? Anyone ever heard of Obama's second-term dictatorship? - Rpemk

He had polio and was a bada#%

9Thomas Jefferson

Come on, he is the best! Scientist, atheist, smart guy who didn't involved in any shady business, participated in creation of the Bill of Rights, his quotes are inspiring till now,... I could go on forever like this. He is just the best, hands off

10Lyndon Johnson

Not only did he pass the Civil and Voting Rights Acts Kennedy put into motion before his assassination, but his charisma with Congress assured him the passage of those bills. Under the Kennedy Administration, there was not enough party support for the bills but Johnson not only garnered it, he made sure they would pass. Also he passed Medicare and Medicaid, two of the most important pieces of health care legislation. He understood what the persecuted needed. He was a man who represented the minority: the discriminated, the hungry, the poor, etc.

No, in my opinion, Lyndon Johnson should be on the list for the top ten worst Presidents. Just look up pics. Of him on google, and read the stories that go along with it and you'll see why.

I'm convinced Johnson was in on JFK's assassination - bobbythebrony

The Contenders

11Richard Nixon

He was a great but deeply complicated man, who had good intentions but didn't always do the right thing. His leadership and intelligence helped ease tensions with the USSR and brought China into the international community. He was a great and flawed man, but he was a man.

12John Tyler

Expanded slavery in western territories
Added Texas to the union
Became president after William Henry Harrison's death

Why is Tyler on this list?
He was a bad president!

13James Monroe

Was president during the Era of Good Feelings

14George W. Bush

There's an old saying Tennessee, I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee, that says elect a moron like me president once, shame one me, elect a moron like me president twice, shame one you.

This man had guts, and a BIG HEART, HE NEEDS TO BE IN TOP10 just because of what he done for Africa.

This is not best presidents but best known ones

He should be in top 3 he's the best and amazing
