Top Ten Most Honest U.S. Presidents
The Top Ten
He was a great man. That is all I have to say. Thanks for coming and have an awesome day!
He lied his ass off during the Civil War. Not to mention he was one of the presidents who exterminated and enslaved the Native Americans!
Judging by his nickname "Honest Abe"
Stupid idiot make up your mind! Is he honest or not idiots!
Carter was not a careless and heartless president. He was forgiving despite delivering weak leadership. The Oil and Fuel Scarcity may have gave him a headache in office because of Nixon's policies. But he was honest and managed to show compassion even after losing greatly against Reagan. He will be handed down as the most honest president in the late 70s.
Before, during and after his presidency. He lived the most Christ like life of anyone I know.
Not a strong president but a president who was honest, caring and a man yearning for world peace. Will go down as the most honest in time.
His honesty and integrity probably cost him the election of 1980. Sometimes, we would rather not know the truth and take the easy way out.
George perhaps wasn't as honest as folks think of him given his talent for being a spy master in the Revolution, but He undoubtedly had this country's best interest at heart which is why he was first in the hearts of his country men.
An exceptional leader with strong moral character that earned the respect of a divided set of colonies and drove the formation of a great democracy and nation.
Brilliant, educated, knowledgeable, eloquent, kindhearted, articulate with experience, hard work ethic and morals.
Inexperienced but a Great president. Lead USA at a very difficult time after the great depression. Was honest, but not close to Jimmy carter's altruism and virtue of bold honesty.
He would have done better had Congress helped him rather than instructed him at every turn.
He lied several times and only his popularity among Blacks and White liberals saved him from being scorned.
Ronald Reagan was only a president because of Hollywood.
White Supremacist who approved and endorsed regimes in Central America that murdered innocent people? Keep drinking that kool aid...
He was literally put on trial for hiding Iran-Contra
He said he would improve the economy- he did. He said that the people don't serve the government- he made sure to serve them instead. He did what he said; following through is huge in politics.
JFK did not believe in secret societies running the world and he was the last non-puppet president. In comparison, he was pretty honest.
JFK had dozens of extramarital affairs. That's not honest.
I know he is inside Call of Duty
You are seriously referencing a stupid game when talking about JFK. I have lost faith in humanity
He reveals againts illuminatis, and that's the reason why he gets killed
He focused his presidency on keeping government honest.
Trump honest? Maybe people voting here don't know what honest means because it doesn't apply to Trump.
Trump, honest? He gets busted daily for lying. This just goes to show that your poll is showing partisanship and not much else.
Trump has kept or tried to keep (amid ridiculously strong opposition) the core impetus of his promises. He's an honest guy who speaks whatever is on his mind as he knows of it.
This con man has the be the most dishonest and immoral human to ever walk into the White House!
Was horrified with the new America that developed after WW II. He was like a grandfather who was disappointed in the turn from love in each other. A hard man but said it as it was.
Not my party and didn't like everything Ike did, but when he said something you knew right where he stood.
Definitely one of the best, should be on the same level as Lincoln and Washington.
I likes ike
Honest did what he did for the good of the country
Faced adversity despite unpopular opinions. when he spoke you knew he was speaking from the heart not DC
Well, I guess he is a bit honest
He is honest too
John Adams was a moral and upright man who dealt with a lying press that hated him as much as they hate Trump today. Adams was more honest than they all gave them credit for. He was likely one of our most honest presidents ever.
Other than Washington and Lincoln, the one who selflessly worked for the nation's liberty and unity
Harry S. Truman should be in the Top 3 along side with Lincoln and Carter. Why is he #16? Truman was one of the most honest presidents in U.S. History. Truman at the time he was running for judge of Missouri, the Political boss at that time "Tom Prendergast" said "politics is a game of friends" and Truman responded "does that mean I'm suppose to let your friends steal $10,000?!.' Prendergast then said "is that what all this yelling is about." Truman said "Tom I don't care if it's 10,000 or 10,0000 I told you when I agreed to run I wasn't going to stand for any monkey business." Prendergast says "You will do what I tell you." Truman tells Tom "No sir, I don't work for you I work for the people of this county." Truman cared about the farmers and was quite upset about having taking the stolen money which his idea was fundraising it not stealing it. When he was senator of Missouri he called out other politicians for being crooks and he said it himself "you can't get rich in politics ...more
He left office with nothing but his army pension, turned down lucrative offers to capitalise on his former office and returned to a humble life back in Missouri. He was also given no provisions for secretaries or aides after he left office. Truman should really rank at the top of this list.
A great man. A lesser man could not have accomplished what he had to endure.
Most definitely should be way above 17! He was almost honest to a fault.
He wasn't honest! He lied about having no slaves at all!
He spoke softly and carried a big stick.
Madison should be much higher than 19. No scandals, almost universally respected by his peers.
Grant was an every man's war dog. Interestingly his reputation was far worse than the man himself. Many of the habits attributed to him were entirely made up. And let's face it, he won the Civil War for lying Lincoln. Even if I agreed with Lincoln's motives, Honest Abe wasn't so honest.
How is Ulysses S. Grant not in the top tens? He was the one who won the Civil War
