President Barack Obama may no longer be in the Oval Office, but many Americans believe he did “the best job” of any president in their lifetime, according to a new Pew Research Center survey.
Forty-four percent of Americans said Obama, who served two terms, is the best or second-best president of their lifetime. Bill Clinton came in next in Pew’s survey with 33 percent, followed by Ronald Reagan with 32 percent.
A panel of 170 presidential politics experts considers Trump the worst president in history, according to rankings published by the New York Times in February of this year. Obama is 8th, with Lincoln, Washington and Franklin Roosevelt holding the top three spots. The same experts ranked Buchanan last and Obama 18th in 2014.
