The 10 Worst U.S. Presidents

Not all U.S. presidents are missed once they leave the White House. IN COMPILING ITS 10 Worst Presidents rankings, U.S. News averaged presidents' scores from three separate metrics: C-SPAN's 2017 Presidential Historians Survey, Siena College's Presidential Expert Poll and the Presidential Greatness Rankings conducted by professors at the University of Houston and Boise State University.

Presidents Richard Nixon and George W. Bush narrowly missed out on a spot among the 10 worst.

U.S. News opted not to include President Donald Trump, who has yet to finish his first term. But he was deemed to be the worst president on the Presidential Greatness Rankings and third-worst in Siena's Presidential Expert Poll.

U.S. News did, however, include President Barack Obama for the first time. Obama ranked 13th-best, behind Lyndon B. Johnson and James Madison.
