    Siena poll names FDR as America?s best president - The Record News: Serving Troy and its surrounding communities (Troyrecord.com)

    Excerpts:
    FDR leads the pack for the fifth time since the survey’s 1982 inception, followed in order by Theodore Roosevelt, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. That top five has remained consistent throughout each of the five times the study has been performed, with only minor shuffling among their rankings.

    There was also little movement among the bottom five presidents, though George W. Bush joined their ranks at number 39, dropping from his initial 23 ranking in 2002’s poll. At number 43, Andrew Johnson has been named our worst president for the second time in a row, followed by James Buchanan, Warren G. Harding, Franklin Pierce and Bush.

    Barack Obama entered the list at number 15,
    Other recent presidents’ rankings include Bill Clinton at number 13, who moved up from the 18th slot in 2002, and George H.W. Bush holding steady at 22. Reagan dropped from 16 to 18.

    My guess: the younger Bush and Reagan will continue to drop while the elder Bush will continue to gain in the future.

    Good to know my choices are right up there at the top. It will be interesting to see this same poll in about 20 -30 years.

    From the link:

    Might just as well say "a poll of more than 200 dyed-in-the-wool leftists".

    Fascist or not, he had the right letter beside his name, which is all the OP cares about.

    Had it not been for Vietnam, I'd choose LBJ. No other president did more for civil rights.

    That's a pretty huge "had it not been..."
