NYT: Presidential scholars rank Trump last among all Presidents
Unfortunately, the article itself is behind a paywall but I have seen tweets from various people who have read the article (including Nate Silver).

It speaks poorly to the field of presidential scholarship that political scientists have Trump ranked as the worst president of all time **after only one year on the job**, below presidents who e.g. helped blunder us into the Civil War & Great Depression.


And I 100% agree. No credible historian should ever rank a President's administration before some time has actually passed. When Bush left office in 2009, he was ranked #42 with only James Buchanan considered a worse President. Now he's ranked #35 and climbing.

If your research begins and stops with the dribble that comes out of the MSM I can see why. He's literally Hitler and he's literally killed tens of thousands of people already.

There's a shock. Professor Goldbergsteinbaum ranked him last.

Bush is a bottom 5 President, and only grows worse with each passing year of incurred debt in the Middle East.

With one year on the job and ranked dead last. There's no agenda there whatsoever. Nope . None at all.

To be fair here, William Henry Harrison only served about 6 weeks and James Garfield about 6 months. Its still stupid to judge his presidency while its in its infancy.

Yeah, the Scholars are biased. No way Trump is that low with the first year economy numbers. It’s just been a year, but Trump is like top 2 Presidents ever, economically, and has done a decent job with Foreign affairs, Syria, etc..,The country is pretty divided politically, but that doesn’t change facts...

That's not how you judge a president, mastrshake

You're really going to rank trump lower than Andrew Johnson, James Buchanan, and Herbert Hoover?

William Henry Harrison was always my favorite president until Trump. If only the other ones could follow his lead.

Any historian worth their salt will tell you that you cannot accurately judge a President until he has been out of office for at least 15 to 20 years, to see the long-term fallout/benefits of their policies.

Such a stupid insult considering Democrats rely on dirt poor, uneducated minorities to be relevant nationally.

That is what this historian is saying. Trump shouldn't even be on the list. They ranked him last for two distinct reasons:

1) They know it's too early to rank him so they put him at the bottom
2) They put him at the bottom to also make a political statement
