Greatest Republican Presidents

The Top Ten

1 Abraham Lincoln Abraham Lincoln Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States its bloodiest war and its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis.

Ronald Reagan at top? Over Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt? BWAHAHA, you've gotta be kidding me!

Unfortunately the Party of Lincoln no longer exists.

"What is conservatism? Is it not adherence to he old and tried, against the new and untried? " -Lincoln

Heads and tails over that buffoon reagan

2 Theodore Roosevelt Theodore Roosevelt Theodore Roosevelt was an American statesman, author, explorer, soldier, naturalist, and reformer who served as the 26th President of the United States from 1901 to 1909. As a leader of the Republican Party during this time, he became a driving force for the Progressive Era in the United States in the more.

This man was the symbol of manly. He took life by the horns and lived it to the fullest

Two words: national parks. Environmentalists should worship at this man's feet. But, the left knows next to nothing about history. Therefore, they will remain forever ignorant about the most environmentally minded president in US history.

Whoever said on here that Roosevelt believed in monopolies either didn't listen in history class or revising it, he was called the TRUST BUSTER, READ THE SHERMAN ACT. I swear people are uneducated

This man was believed in business monopolies, disgusting that he's on this list

3 Ronald Reagan Ronald Reagan Ronald Wilson Reagan (1911-2004) was an American politician and actor who was 40th President of the United States from 1981 to 1989 . Prior to his presidency, he was the 33rd Governor of California from 1967 to 1975, following a career as a Hollywood actor and union leader until his death in 2004

How the hell is he above Lincoln? - Alpha101

Ronald Reagan is and should be the hero of the Republican Party. His leadership put in motion the end of the Soviet Union, winning the Cold War, peach through strength, smaller government and more responsible citizens, and the conservative revival in American politics that has shaped our political landscape for decades now.

Not enough words to describe my love and admiration for Ronald Reagan not only as a president, but as a man. Rest in peace Gipper.

Greatest president ever

4 Dwight D. Eisenhower Dwight D. Eisenhower Dwight David "Ike" Eisenhower was an American politician and general who served as the 34th President of the United States from 1953 until 1961. He was a five-star general in the United States Army during World War II and served as Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in Europe.

What if he ran for president in 2016 against Hilary Clinton?

He's what we need. My favorite president

He was very accepting and progressive.

5 Donald Trump Donald Trump Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American businessman, television personality, politician, and the 45th President of the United States. Born and raised in Queens, New York City, Trump received an economics degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1968. In 1971, more.

He is the people's President; in debt to no one but the people who elected him and fulfilling the promises he made to us: the economy is up, unemployment is down and he supports the servicemen/women who protect us. He doesn't drink or smoke and his brain cells are intact to a point of clairvoyance when compared to the rest of the political opinions out there. He has vowed to "drain the Washington Swamp" and eventually someone will be prosecuted and the snowball effect will happen, only then will the fake news have to applaud him and post better pictures of him then the one posted here!

In less than 2 years, leads a roaring economy by deregulating many of the Obama's administrations crippling regulations, destroyed ISIS, brokered peace between North and South Korea, neutralizing a nuclear threat- garnered respect for the US as a sovereign nation all over the world, fulfilled long overdue promise to move US embassy to Jerusalem- and in over 50 years, has fulfilled the conservative Super Bowl win- a conservative dominant supreme court. In less than 2 years. By the time he's done with his 2nd term, he may have more impact than his personal idol, Ronald Reagan. In some ways, he's already surpassed the beloved president. In just 2 years.

This is man who has led his own companies into bankruptcy 6 times. He is wasting money on wall that will never get finished (because Mexico will never pay for it) He cannot take advice or criticism and picks on the most vulnerable people. A real champ!

I voted for Trump because he is a Republican, and although he is not the best he is trying his best.

6 James Madison James Madison James Madison, Jr. was a political theorist, American statesman, and served as the fourth President of the United States.
7 Thomas Jefferson Thomas Jefferson Thomas Jefferson was an American Founding Father who was principal author of the Declaration of Independence, and served as the 3rd President of the United States from 1801-1809. He was born on April 13, 1743, and died on July 4, 1826, on the same day 2nd United States President John Adams died.

I thought Jefferson was on the democratic-republican party, which turned into the democrat party

But I think his agrarian ideologies and opposition to Hamilton's idea of a national bank led historians to think of him as a Republican instead. - Volhosis

8 James Monroe James Monroe James Monroe was an American statesman and Founding Father who served as the fifth President of the United States from 1817 to 1825.

Why is he so low? - Alpha101

A great man!

9 William McKinley William McKinley William McKinley was the 25th President of the United States, serving from March 4, 1897 until his assassination in September 1901, six months into his second term.

McKinley is vastly under-rated at 15. He is easily in the top 6-7 Republican Presidents.

10 John Quincy Adams John Quincy Adams

The Contenders

11 William H. Taft

Got stuck in a bathtub´┐Ż"

12 Gerald R. Ford
13 Calvin Coolidge Calvin Coolidge John Calvin Coolidge Jr. was an American politician and the 30th President of the United States. A Republican lawyer from New England, born in Vermont, Coolidge worked his way up the ladder of Massachusetts state politics, eventually becoming governor.

I voted for Coolidge because he was the last real Republican, if you're going by todays definition of the party. Every "Republican" President since him has followed a very distorted version of the party's platform. And while Presidents such as Lincoln and Roosevelt were Republicans, the party was much different back then than it is now. Presidents like Lincoln, T. Roosevelt, and Eisenhower would, most likely, be Democrats today. Just like Clinton and Obama were much more moderate on the issues than their opponents realize, and weren't true Democrats. - Alpha101

His hands-off leadership producing seven years of prosperity, peace, and balanced budgets. Now I can barely remember an America that wasn't at war.

Had one of the strongest economies ever.

He had the economy booming.

14 Rutherford B. Hayes Rutherford B. Hayes Rutherford Birchard Hayes was the 19th President of the United States from 1877 to 1881, an American congressman, and governor of Ohio. Hayes was a lawyer and staunch abolitionist who defended runaway slaves in court proceedings.
15 Ulysses S. Grant Ulysses S. Grant Ulysses S. Grant was an American soldier and statesman who served as Commanding General of the Army and the 18th President of the United States, the highest positions in the military and the government of the United States.
16 Richard Nixon Richard Nixon Richard Milhous Nixon was the 37th President of the United States from 1969 until his resignation in 1974, the only president to resign from office. He had previously served as the 36th Vice President of the United States from 1953 to 1961, and prior to that as a U.S. Representative and also Senator more.

Watergate overshadows his tremendous accomplishments as President.


17 George W. Bush George W. Bush George Walker Bush is an American politician who served as the 43rd President of the United States from 2001 to 2009 and 46th Governor of Texas from 1995 to 2000. The eldest son of Barbara and George H. W.

Got us through 9/11 like a champ

Bush did 9/11

Most underrated U.S president.

Fundamentally helped America and his son unfortunately didn't do much to help the family name

21 Warren G. Harding Warren G. Harding Warren Gamaliel Harding was the 29th President of the United States, serving from March 4, 1921 until his death in 1923.
