According to the 2018 President and Executive Politics Presidential Greatness Survey, in which respondents rate each president on a scale from 0 to 100 for “overall greatness,” Trump placed last among all American commanders-in-chief.
The survey was conducted among all current and recent members of the Presidents and Executive Politics Section of the American Political Science Association. Respondents voted Abraham Lincoln to the top spot with an average score of 95.03. George Washington came in second with a score of 92.59.
Obama placed eighth on the list, with a score of 71.13. His ranking increased by 10 spots from the previous survey in 2014.

Trump, for his part, had an average score of 12.34, rounding out the bottom of the list. Even among self-identified Republicans, Trump ranked a dismal 40th out of 45.
Trump has previously ranked himself second on a list of most “presidential” presidents.
“It is much easier to act presidential than what we are doing here tonight, believe me,” Trump said at a rally in Ohio. “With the exception of the late, great Abraham Lincoln, I can be more presidential than any president that’s ever held this office.”
The survey was conducted from December 22, 2017 to January 16, 2018 and included responses from 170 experts.
