Trump ranks last in 'Presidential Greatness Survey'

US President Donald Trump came in last in the 2018 Presidents and Executive Politics Presidential Greatness Survey, released by professors of US University of Houston and Boise State University.

Writing in the New York Times, political scientists Brandon Rottinghaus and Justin S. Vaughn reveal that their most recent survey of scholars shows that Trump's first year was seen as a catastrophe by both Democrats and Republicans in the field of political science.

The experts added: 'Beyond his reputation or ranking, Donald Trump's very presidency may alter perceptions of presidential legacies as his unique approach to the office continues to surprise'. But that means that some presidents were ranked lower this year, including Bill Clinton, who dropped five places to 13th.

Roosevelt, the godfather of presidential liberalism, received more than twice as many votes from Republicans as Reagan, his conservative counterpart.
