    Who's the Most Popular Modern President? - Yahoo! News

    JFK cause he died in office, he sucked as a President though.

    Ronald Reagan second.

    Bush has a 49 percent approval rating just 2 years after he got out of office. It WILL go up as time goes by. So much for him being the worst ever, ehh you retarded Liberals?

    I liked JFK as president.

    lowered taxes, kicked ass of foreign countries who messed with us, slept with marlyin monroe...ok the last one was a bad thing for a president or any man to do, cheat on his wife, but still she was the hottie of the day ;).

    Always said for years, that JFK gets the emotional boost of the assassination.. his 'ranking' or 'popularity' is not based on actual doings

    For me... in the past 60 or so years... my top 2 are Ike and Reagan

    JFK CAUSED the Cuban missile crises. He convinced Krushev that he was weak and would simply accept missiles in Cuba rather then risk war. Read some history.

    I attached the link below:

    Kennedy Still Highest-Rated Modern President, Nixon Lowest

    W. ranks 8th out of 9. The only one that ranks lower is a guy that got impeached. Jimmy Carter, LBJ, and Gerald Ford rank higher than W. Just keeping it fair and balanced. W. will not move much higher than where he's at in my opinion. He's been on TV touting his book lately and showing himself as the likable guy we all remember and want to have a beer with. Just shouldn't have been President. Immediately following, a midterm where his party was successful, as the outparty always is. It's popular right now for the unified GOP to say you bad, we good. At least 1/2 the country won't easily forget we thought he was a horrible President, no matter how likable he is.

    I've read history, thanks. I liked Kennedy. I'm as entitled to that opinion as you are to yours.

    At least I don't rely on links to provide my opinions.... unlike some on the forum.
