Greatest Republican Presidents

The Top Ten Greatest Republican Presidents

1 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 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

Helped a lot with foreign policies and overall pretty great

Was probably the best president of the 20th century. He did a lot to help conservatism in our country. Not to mention he had a big part in the tearing down of the Berlin Wall.

Reagan was tough on communism and saved America from the Soviet Union

3 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 ...read 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

4 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 created nasa and ended the Korean War which would have been more brutal than the Vietnam war

He was very accepting and progressive.

He's what we need. My favorite president

5 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, ...read 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!

R Reagan was great, but he also started the 'war on drugs' which was misguided and imprisoned millions for petty crimes instead of offering treatment. Trump is #2 on this list. His second term will ensure that.

Best fight against political enemies.
Best for the economy.
Best for job creation.
Best for stopping trade theft of China.
Best for border security.

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!

6 James Madison James Madison, Jr. was a political theorist, American statesman, and served as the fourth President of the United States.
7 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.

Underrated and economy under his administration had strengthened

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

8 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

This man was way better than trump

9 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!

10 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.

The Contenders

Prior to assuming the presidency, Bush served as the 43rd Vice President of the United States under Ronald Reagan from 1981 to 1989.

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

12 John Quincy Adams John Quincy Adams (July 11, 1767 – February 23, 1848) was an American statesman who served as the sixth President of the United States from 1825 to 1829 at the peak of a political career during which he served in various capacities as diplomat, United States Senator, United States Secretary of State, ...read more.

He was a major fighter against slavery once saying that if a civil war broke out that he could use his presidential powers to end slavery. It might have been where Lincoln got the idea of the emancipation proclamation. He negotiated the end of the War of 1812. He paid off much of the national debt and promoted economic modernization and education. Even after his presidency, the crusade was not over for him. After his presidency, he became a member of the house and continued his career as a representative until he died of a heart attack in 1848.

13 William H. Taft

Got stuck in a bathtub�"

15 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.

Not much people give him credit, but under his administration he radically transformed the US government by assigning people in the government based on merit, instead of other things.

16 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 ...read more.

Watergate overshadows his tremendous accomplishments as President.

YEA SURE

I never vote the party, but always select the best person for the job. I voted for George W. Bush both times because I thought he was the best person for the job.

George bush hates black people

Got us through 9/11 like a champ

Bush did 9/11
