    The three worst by far are woodrow wilson, FDR and LBJ.

    Special mention to Nixon and Hoover.

    I second Woodrow Wilson, followed by LBJ, Carter, FDR, and lastly, Nixon.

    Reagan is the best Prez of the last 50 years - Teddy would be the best of the last 100 years.

    I left off Carter, he's in a world of his own, he's actually the worst POTUS alltime.

    Shows what happens when you post something while tired. :)

    Yes, Carter and LBJ are very close in being the worst President of the last 50 years, but I give the nod to LBJ because we continue to deal with the lasting impacts of his Great Society programs that greatly expanded the role of government.

    Carter was just a complete and utter putz...

    We only get 10 choices and I didn't think anyone would pick Kennedy as the worst in the last 100.

    I personally think he was overrated. Great orator, though.

    Difficult to say, but I voted for Reagan. The man's domestic policies were an orgy of neoliberal expansion.

    EDIT: If it were just a matter of international affairs, I would have voted for Kennedy.
