The Top Ten

1 Barack Obama Barack Obama Barack Hussein Obama II is the 44th president of the United States of America. He was elected in 2008 after serving in the Senate from 2005-08, beating John McCain and becoming the first African-American to be elected President of the United States. He was elected again in 2012, beating Mitt Romney.

This President had to face one of the worst economic downturns in the history of the nation. In addition, the opposition party declared that this President would not get any help from the opposition party. This President had this nation number one enemy captured, where his predecessors could not accomplish. This President got a health bill through congress without the help of the opposition party. It is unfortunate that this country is still listening to the wrong parts of the citizens who do not want equity and harmony in this country. President Obama has performed without the opposition being able to hurt him.

1. The first non-white President.
2. Appointed two females to The Supreme Court.
3. Saved the country from a depression.
4. Inherited two unfunded/unnecessary wars.
5. Re-elected with 50% of the popular vote.
6. Forced to work against a race-biased GOP opposition and media.

This man inherited a bag of garbage from Bush. He has done a marvelous job in his office, considering where he began by having to dig us out of the unbelievable mess Bush left, to say nothing of the opposition from the Republican party and the despicable racism from the American people.

There won't be a second one.

2 John F. Kennedy John F. Kennedy John Fitzgerald "Jack" Kennedy, commonly referred to by his initials JFK, was an American politician who served as the 35th President of the United States from January 1961 until his assassination in November 1963. The Cuban Missile Crisis, The Bay of Pigs Invasion, the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, the ...read more.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy knew there were conspiracies within the US government. He was on his way to exposing them. That is why this wonderful man was taken from us so early. As was his brother Bobby whose intentions were the same. To expose the corrupted politicians that sought to destroy our country. He had great dreams for the US, dreams his son wanted to go forth with and yet again he was taken also. There will never be another like JFK.

Truly a world leader, admired not only in his country but all of the world, from Northern Ireland to deepest Africa. JFK was once of a kind and the US will never heal the searing wound that his premature death brought.

A conflicted man for sure but one who despite his privileged life understood the responsibilities of the office as few have since.

Outstanding President

3 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 .

Ronald Reagan always had America's best interest at heart. He made us proud to be Americans. Creating millions of jobs and taking us out of the darkness that was caused by inflation and infighting. The word's that echo in my ears still today are "tear down this wall" and so it was the Berlin wall came down. He was always so respectful of his military and so proud of them. He was a good one, better then most. Wished we had another like him.

Reagan did not think he would ever become President but he took to the role and excelled. Guided by Godly principles, he returned the trust of the people and left America better after 8 years, fighting inflation, creating millions of jobs and connecting people for freedom. Other leaders at that time could only ask about the "American miracle".

He could tell you bad news in a way that it did not seem so bad. Had a great relationship with Thatcher and between them brought the end of the cold war.
A great negotiator and American, the best President in my lifetime no doubt about it, by the way I am a Brit, great friend to my country, top man.

Best president the United States has ever had. He put an end to the Cold War and communism, rebuilt the Armed Forces, lowered the federal income tax rate, and more. - cpastena

4 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 .

The way he handled the civil war, no other would have done that

I really like Lincoln, he was my favorite president. He was not perfect at everything but he tried his best his whole life. I couldn't believe he was killed

Lincoln was a strong guy he was a great wrestler if he saw booth he would of killed that coward thank you for freeing us - Jackhammer619

I can't believe he is not the top he freed slave while JFK had many affairs Jackie deserved better

5 George Washington George Washington George Washington was the first President of the United States, the Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War, and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States.

Washington was the primary founding father of our nation as he led the militia and continental army into crucial battles. Once the war was won, he continued on to be the chairman of the constitutional convention and later the first and only unanimously elected president of the United States. He was considered to be a war hero and demigod among the people allowing him to have ample power to form the union. Being nonpartisan, he led the young country through its early growing pains and left it a more stable institution at the time of his retirement.

George Washington should be number 1. The only president elected unanimously. The president who refused to run for a third term when he was asked in order to ensure a peaceful transfer of power. Without him as president even his enemies didn't think the new nation would have survived. He acted in a nonpartisan manner, for the good of the country as he was very cognizant that the world was watching the American experiment in nation building.

Only Abraham Lincoln had the influence on our nation. Popularity is over rated. My vote went to the man who I believe was the greatest President of our Nations History. All had faults, all had strengths.

The British would have control of America if it wasn't for George Washington

Roosevelt Franklin Delano Roosevelt, commonly known as FDR, was an American statesman and political leader who served as the President of the United States from 1933 to 1945. A Democrat, he won a record four presidential elections and dominated his party for many years as a central figure in world events during ...read more.

He was elected 4 times, no other president has ever been elected 4 times most is 2. Since he was elected 4 times he must be an outstanding president that the people elected him that many times.

He was elected 4 times, no other served the U S that length of time and in that span of time did an outstanding job as President.

He led the entire nation out of America's great depression. I think that says enough about this amazing man.

He got us out of the Great Depression. 4 terms HE HAD TO BR GREAT! He should be at the top

7 Bill Clinton Bill Clinton William Jefferson Clinton was the 42nd President of the United States . He previously served as governor of Arkansas . He became president after unseating incumbent president, George H . W Bush in 1992 . He was re-elected in 1996 after defeating Senator Bob Dole .

No disrespect to Ronald Reagan, but how in the world he is ahead of Bill Clinton--how even Clinton is not in first place to begin with is beyond me!

How this man was ever elected the second time is beyond me. One is never really two different people, moral and honest in one situation and corrupt in another. He really pulled the wool over the eyes of millions of people with his smooth talk. No this man should have never been elected the first time, and definitely never the second time. The fact that he is on this list does not speak well of the citizens of this country!

The 90's were pretty good... Bush the senior may have done a few things right economically and deserves a little credit, but Clinton led the country with vision and an even keel. Why do we have to worry about his affairs? It seriously doesn't matter.

He was a Great predident

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.

An incredibly tough person, who survived an assassination attempt during a campaign speech, and with the bullet lodged against his ribs, still finished up the speech before going to the hospital. A shame we have nobody like that today.

How is Barack Obama ahead of this guy? Anyone ever heard of the Rough Riders? Anyone ever heard of Obama's second-term dictatorship? - Rpemk

Leader who accomplished much. Panama Canal, Our national parks, building up our navy, making the United States a dominant force in the world. Was a likeable, witty person, who told it like it was.

9 Thomas Jefferson Thomas Jefferson Thomas Jefferson was an American Founding Father who was principal author of the Declaration of Independence.

Come on, he is the best! Scientist, atheist, smart guy who didn't involved in any shady business, participated in creation of the Bill of Rights, his quotes are inspiring till now,... I could go on forever like this. He is just the best, hands off

Jeez, I hope a lot of the voters on this list are non-Americans, who can be excused for not being familiar with all of the names.
Otherwise, it reflects very poorly on our current educational system.

10 Lyndon Johnson Lyndon Johnson Lyndon Baines Johnson, often referred to as LBJ, was the 36th President of the United States from 1963 to 1969, assuming the office after serving as the 37th Vice President of the United States under President John F.

Not only did he pass the Civil and Voting Rights Acts Kennedy put into motion before his assassination, but his charisma with Congress assured him the passage of those bills. Under the Kennedy Administration, there was not enough party support for the bills but Johnson not only garnered it, he made sure they would pass. Also he passed Medicare and Medicaid, two of the most important pieces of health care legislation. He understood what the persecuted needed. He was a man who represented the minority: the discriminated, the hungry, the poor, etc.

No, in my opinion, Lyndon Johnson should be on the list for the top ten worst Presidents. Just look up pics. Of him on Google, and read the stories that go along with it and you'll see why.

I'm convinced Johnson was in on JFK's assassination - bobbythebrony

The Newcomers

? Donald J. Trump

The Contenders

11 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.

While Nixon is more commonly hated than any other president, he is easily the most well known. We teach children about him, constantly mock him, and his name is now synonymous for lying. There really isn't a contest here.

He was a great but deeply complicated man, who had good intentions but didn't always do the right thing. His leadership and intelligence helped ease tensions with the USSR and brought China into the international community. He was a great and flawed man, but he was a man.

Again another president that didn't take the job seriously and is a disgrace to the country

A President I know nothing about, but he sounds like a jerk.

Expanded slavery in western territories
Added Texas to the union
Became president after William Henry Harrison's death

He wrote " May none but honest and wise men ever rule under this roof."

14 James Monroe James Monroe

Although, economic panic took place under his administration, James Monroe continued to be a popular leader as he had an ear for popular opinion.

Was president during the Era of Good Feelings

15 Andrew Jackson Andrew Jackson Andrew Jackson was an American statesman who served as the seventh President of the United States from 1829 to 1837 . He was born near the end of the colonial era, somewhere near the then-unmarked border between North and South Carolina, into a recently immigrated Scots-Irish farming family of relatively ...read more.

His face is on a twenty dollar bill he should be number 4 or 5?

He is a badass action hero who saved New Orleans from the Bloody Brittish. I think he owed slaves and I'm not sure he was a good President, but he was the man in 1812!

He made great strides for the common American citizen

Was shot three times and did not die.

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 thought in the army he deserves respect

He warned us about the Military-Industrial Complex. He was right.

There's an old saying Tennessee, I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee, that says elect a moron like me president once, shame one me, elect a moron like me president twice, shame one you.

Worst president of all time I don't even know what his picture is doing here. You don't here of critics because he is white. What a shame.

This man had guts, and a BIG HEART, HE NEEDS TO BE IN TOP10 just because of what he done for Africa.

I turned 18 just in time to vote against this War mongering corporate puppet. No dice...
