This list coheres with most of the scholarly rankings I've seen, although Harrison and Garfield often aren't ranked because they didn't really have time to make any impact for good or for ill.

I'll take that bet. Let me know how much money you'd seriously like to lose. Not kidding. Comment on one of my quizzes and we can work out a way to put the money in escrow or something. Is $5000 serious? $1k?

Biden should be on this cause he’s setting records for incompetence and as of now we aren’t even halfway done with him.

please...he certainly won't be on the top of anyone's list, but until he's been impeached once he won't even approach Trump's stupidity.

This poll was extremely biased in favor of Trump (he should be lower) but otherwise decent. Anyone ranked lower than William Henry Harrison, who got sick shortly after his inauguration and died 31 days later, really put in the work to be exceptionally bad. If you can't beat out a sick guy who died after a month - that's basically saying that you were so monumentally terrible, so frequently actively doing harm to the country, that we would have been better off had the White House been left completely vacant during your time in office. I think Fillmore and Pierce probably belong in that group, too.

...and fwiw for those of you looking for a serious scientific poll of experts or historians where Trump is not ranked in the bottom 10 (or where Biden or Obama are), I'm pretty sure there aren't any. Even including polls that only sought input from conservative or Republican experts. Might be time to reexamine your own biases or information sources. Just humbly putting that forward.

(Polls of Fox News viewers - or MSNBC website visitors, for that matter - are not scientific. Polls of pundits, lobbyists, political commentators or sitting politicians are not taken seriously.)

Harrison died just 31 days after his inauguration in 1841, and had the shortest presidency in U.S. history. I don't see how that would even qualify him for being on this list. Nixon should probably be on this list just based on The Watergate Scandal (which eventually led to his resignation), his selection of Vice President (Spiro Agnew), and his start on the War on Drugs (which was/is a massive failure). It's not to say everything Nixon did was bad, but those are some pretty big blunders compared to someone who didn't even have a chance to lead before dying.

It's a pity the only gay president (James Buchanan) was so bad
