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 through its Civil War - 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!

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

Unfortunately the Party of Lincoln no longer exists.

2 Ronald Reagan Ronald Reagan Ronald Wilson Reagan 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 .

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.

How the hell is he above Lincoln? - Alpha101

I like his one-liners/stories. Also, he led the US during the most crucial stretch of the Cold War.

Easily the second greatest GOP president of all time, second only to Lincoln. Set the all time record for Electoral Vote wins (525) in 1984. The record will stand forever. God Bless the Great Communicator.

3 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


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!

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!

He builds a wall between us and Mexico because they have drugs. He bans immigration from a select few countries because they very rarely are terrorists. He deports hundreds of people just because. He funds two different oil pipelines nobody else wants to happen. He takes the U.S. out of the Paris Agreement, pretty much dooming the country for years to come, only so people can have more jobs. Yeah, ain't he a star - Midevilnight

Better than Obama.

6 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

7 James Madison James Madison James Madison, Jr. was a political theorist, American statesman, and served as the fourth President of the United States.
8 Gerald R. Ford
9 Richard Nixon Richard Nixon Richard Milhous Nixon was the 37th President of the United States, serving from 1969 to 1974 when he became the only U.S.

Watergate overshadows his tremendous accomplishments as President.

10 William H. Taft

The Contenders

11 James Monroe James Monroe

Why is he so low? - Alpha101

12 Calvin Coolidge Calvin Coolidge

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.

He had the economy booming.
