Greatest Democratic U.S. Presidents

The Top Ten

1 John F. Kennedy John Fitzgerald Kennedy (May 29th, 1917-November 22, 1963) commonly referred to by his initials JFK, was an American politician who served as the 35th President of the United States from January 1961 until his assassination. The Cuban Missile Crisis, The Bay of Pigs Invasion, the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, ...read more.

If Kennedy served a full term in office, he would be considered as the greatest president in history. Yes, the flaws he had regarding the Bay of Pigs invasion may have proved the US as a laughing stock because it is a superpower. But, what makes him the greatest president was his charisma as he inspired Americans to not fear in the Cuban Missile Crises.

He forsaw the decline of Latin America. And to prevent massive emigration from their home-land. Created a program called: "ALLIANCE. FOR. THE. PROGRESS". Where the US would teach Ranchers, how to make their land more productive. In addition, he demanded from every Nation to have their school with a cafeteria to have their pupils well fed. Right after he was so vile assassinated, Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador and Mexico, that I particular knows of closed those coffee shops. However, I bet the whole continent did the same. THIS. WAS. THE. WORSE. BETRAYAL IN. HUMAN. HISTORY.

Kennedy warned people of the lies in the government in his secret society speech saying that the government acts behind the citizens backs.

He was so cool, stop trying to steal him republicans, Marilyn already did lol

2 Franklin D. Roosevelt Franklin Delano Roosevelt, commonly known as FDR, was an American statesman and political leader who served as the 32nd President of the United States from 1933 to 1945. A Democrat, he won a record four presidential elections and dominated his party for many years as a central figure in world events ...read more.

He helped end the Great Depression which was escalated during the Hoover presidency. He removed America from the Gold Standard, his secretary of agriculture Henry Wallace helped farmers recover from the crippling depression, he ended prohibition, introduced the New Deal which prevented another financial crisis until the policies of the New Deal were removed in the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s. He also played a major role in ww2 doing much of the work on the western front and moving forward against Japan.

How anyone can rank Kennedy above FDR, I'll never know. FDR changed world history. Had it not been for the US entry into WWII, none of Europe would be free today.

Any man that can serve as president for 12 years deserves to be first

I loved his executive order that placed American citizens of Japanese descent into internment camps.

"this guy " was a racist and an insult to the party

You're not voting for him just because he is African American, all being racist not voting for just because he has a different skin tone then you. - FrankP

Without him the world will be in recession. US should be grateful to someone who helps to pull them out of recession after the mess created by Bush. Democratic party produces better president than republicians

If you compare the ridiculous photo of Obama with the other presidents posted you can tell the person who put this survey together is a bias.

Racist. Murderer. Liar.

8 James K. Polk

Annexation of Texas, which lead to war with Mexico which gives us California, Arizona, New Mexico. Then threaten England to sell us Oregon territory. Which gives us western United States. Most underrated for sure.
