Greatest Republican Presidents

The Top Ten

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.

Lincoln was all about unity, he lead the country by bringing an End to the Civil War. Sure, people have died but the Confederacy was defeated. Lincoln opposed slavery, therefore introducing the emancipation proclamation which granted the freedom for slaves who were definitely of African descent.

I shudder to think where this country would be if he had not been elected, and wonder what a second term completed would have been like for this country.

How can you argue with a man who wanted our country to embody in reality that all people who live here are equal? He led the fight to make sure that that would be true. Sadly, the fight continues; it's not over yet. But this is the very basis of our country: Liberty and justice for ALL, not just for SOME.

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

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

Reagan was the last real President we have had in the United States. If George H. W. Bush would have maintained his economic policies, we would never have had another Democrat in office. Reagan was everything a president should be, an independent thinker, diplomat, aggressive, and honest. Above all honesty and respect for the office.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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

He had the insight to preserve our valuable land in the National Park System.

One of the best, conservationist, outdoorman, loved the common man and detested monopolies.

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.

He was the man responsible for the interstate highway system. He believed if attacked our country had to be mobile. Detested prejudice and believed all men and woman equal.

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

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

My favorite republicans president of all time

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.

The country is blessed to have someone of his caliber in office, not a true politician but a true American and businessman. He is leading the fight against socialism, a reckless media and an ideology that attacks religion, American ideals, freedoms and values by preserving constitutional integrity.

Greatest. President. Ever. Lowest Unemployment Rates ever. Made the Military the most powerful it’s ever been. Against the evil of the left. Helped the US get out of the international problems that Obama got us in. Helped deal us out of Globalism. Finally, and most importantly, he is against the evil of abortion. I love this man.

Shares the opinion of many Americans that our blood, sweat and tears have been spent building our country and the ideals we built it on is worth protecting.

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.

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

Played a big part of defining our Democratic Republic, was a student of Political theories.

7 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.

Probably the most intelligent President, his vision of Democracy is the a big reason we are a Republic. Louisiana Purchase, form Napoleon.

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.

This man was way better than trump

8 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.

Underrated and economy under his administration had strengthened

Restructured the Economy.

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.

Founding father, progressive for his time and believed in a Democratic Republic

Why is he so low?

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.

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

11 George H. W. Bush George Herbert Walker Bush (June 12, 1924 - November 30, 2018) was an American politician who served as the 41st President of the United States from 1989 to 1993. 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.

Served this country in many capacities, his life was dedicated to Public Service.

13 William H. Taft
14 Gerald R. Ford
15 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.

Underrated, brought this country back to prominence in the world.

16 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.

Champion of abolishing all slavery/

17 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.

Ended the Viêt Nam War! And was persecuted for the same thing the later president, Obama did. Spied on the opposite party. The difference the media proudly played the video from Obama’s spy.

Nixon was a good president. He founded the EPA, Nixon was also well known to being one of the most involved presidents for Nature.But, sadly the Watergate scandal effected his power and trust by an immense amount.

Watergate overshadows his tremendous accomplishments as President.

Good president

18 Chester A. Arthur Chester Alan Arthur was an American attorney and politician who served as the 21st President of the United States; he succeeded James A. Garfield upon the latter's assassination.
19 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.

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.

He maybe the only good republicans president

Got us through 9/11 like a champ

Led us through 9-11
