Look Where Obama Landed in This C-SPAN Presidential Ranking

President Obama was in the 12th slot of a ranking of U.S. presidents that C-SPAN did recently—a pretty outrageous slot to find him in considering most of what he would’ve been remembered for is currently being undone by President Trump.

The former president ranked behind such notable GOP presidents as Dwight D. Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan.

George W. Bush was ranked 33rd on the list this year. While methodology did not necessarily take public approval into consideration, W.’s approval rating in the midst of his presidency peaked at 90 percent. Obama’s approval peaked at 62 percent as he exited office.

President Bush left the presidency with 54 percent approval.

C-SPAN conducts the same poll in the year following every presidential election, so results on President Trump’s supposed “success” will be revealed in 2021.




  1. After looking at those rankings, I would say “See what happens with the people after they take or cut back on history in schools. Abraham Lincoln above George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. Where is John Adams. This poll is complete Bull Sheet. Obama should be no where near the top in rankings, he should be the last in the rankings. Everything he has done was Bull Sheet and has to be done over again.

    • Excellent. Washington, followed by Jefferson, John Adams, Madison, Jackson (I know, I know, Trail of Tears, but he kicked the European bankers – aka Rothschild – out), Teddy Roosevelt, Coolidge, JFK, Reagan. Wilson, FDR, LBJ, and Obama were all flaming prog/libs. And Lincoln – the worst. He trampled all over the Constitution and started the downward spiral into Big Gov (Federal). Anyone mis-educated since the 1930’s is totally ignorant concerning US History.

  2. That should read – results on President Trump’s “success” will be revealed in 2025!!! But we the people already know he is a success.

    • Let me know when he does anything successful.

      “I’ll repeal Obamacare on day one!” Obamacare still there.

      “I’ll build the wall, and Mexico will pay for it.” Mexico says screw that, they aren’t funding Berlin Wall II.

      “I’ll introduce term limits on day one.” It’s possible I missed this one through all the news reports of trump saying things like “the leak was real, but the news that reported it was a lie.” But I haven’t seen this happen. If you have conflicting information, I welcome your information.

      “I’ll remove DACA (the “Dreamers Act”, where children brought here illegally who have established lawful lives here other than that, can stay) on day one.” still there.

      “I’ll deport all illegal alien criminals on day one.” In fact, his EXACT words were “Day one, my first hour in office, those people are gone.” Still here almost a month later.

      “I will declare China a currency manipulator on day one.” What declaration?

      “I’ll withdraw the United States from the Trans Pacific Partnership” — again, maybe this has been lost in the shuffle, but has anyone seen any news on this?

      Don’t get me wrong…Donald Trump HAS kept several of his “Day One” campaign promises. And I know that NO politician, regardless of party, is able to keep all of their promises.

      But…it may be premature to call him a “success.” Let’s wait and see how his presidency plays out. If we all die in a nuclear war with Russia (or North Korea, or anyone else), it would be hard to call it a success.

      I’ll wait and see what happens before I call it one. Maybe you should, too.

    • 1 – Ensuring that millions of previously uninsured people have access to health care. Yes, Obamacare needs MUCH improvement (as in it’s still geared towards making money for the insurance industries), but the singular fact that insurance companies must now cover pre-existing conditions is HUGE. Before Obamacare, they had ZERO options.

      2 – Killed Osama bin Laden. I mean…bin Laden was Public Enemy #1 under George W. Bush. You’d think Republicans would be happy that he was dispatched, even if it was under a Democratic president.

      3 – Ordered an audit of government contracts to combat waste and abuse, saving U.S. taxpayers (like me) money.

      4 – Signed an Executive Order instructing federal agencies to review all federal regulations and remove any unnecessary and/or burdensome regulations from the books.

      5 – Banned gifts from lobbyists to anyone in the Executive Branch.

      6 – Established a central portal for Americans to find service opportunities.

      7 – By the end of his first year, the economy created and sustained 2.1 million jobs and the ARRA (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Recovery_and_Reinvestment_Act_of_2009) stimulated the economy by 3.5%

      8 – In 2010 alone, more jobs were created than had been created during Bush’s eight years.

      9 – Provided funding to states and the Department of Homeland Security to save thousands of police and firefighter jobs from being cut during the recession.

      10 – Signed bill to provide extra training for local police forces, especially with regard to active shooter situations.

      11 – Worked with Apple Computer to get them to build more product here, and the company is building two large plants to manufacture products here; one in Texas and one in Arizona.

      12 – As of December 2016 (his last full month as president), he achieved a record 75 consecutive months (6¼ years) of overall job growth, and 82% *private sector” job growth, both records.

      13 – In April 2016, under Obama, jobless claims dropped to their lowest levels since 1973.

      14 – Reduced the Federal Budget Deficit by 2/3rds.

      15 – Ordered 65 executives who took bailout money to cut their own pay until they paid back all bailout money.

      16 – Closed off-shore tax avoidance loopholes.

      17 – Brought airline industry back to their highest profitability since before the recession.

      18 – Stock market has reached record highs, restoring most of the economic losses felt during the Bush Recession.

      19 – Signed Blue Alert Law, which provides police officers with more information when they are threatened.

      20 – Signs law restoring Arlington Cemetery burial rights for women pilots in World War II.

      21 – Signed bill to improve protections for correctional officers and their families.

      22 – Provided active combat troops with better body armor.

      23 – Ordered improvements to access to mental health care for veterans, military personnel and their families.

      24 – Signed bill to expand the availability of housing to homeless veterans.

      25 – Signed bill to expand the availability of housing to homeless veterans.

      26 – Created a Presidential Memorandum to restore scientific integrity in government decision-making.

      27 – Oversaw a 50% decrease in cost of prescription drugs for seniors.

      28 – Eliminated the Bush-era practice of forbidding Medicare from negotiating with drug companies on price.

      29 – Signed a bill that provided $4.3 billion in additional assistance to 9/11 first responders.

      30 – Since passage of the ACA (“Obamacare”), health care inflation is at its lowest level since 1960.

      There. I’ve given you ten times the reasons you asked for. But I have a feeling that none of this will convince you if you’ve already chosen not to be swayed.

  3. Thanks to our present education system in a few years students wont even know who these Presidents are except for the Liberal ones that todays so called educators shove down their throats.

  4. Not enough information on rankings of early presidents. Monroe, Tyler, Jackson would have been good. frankly Obama is placed too highly on this if most early presidents were included but not published.

  5. LBJ? What a joke. With the amount of corruption going on now in the media, I’m surprised Obama isn’t rated the best. They may just want to seem unbiased…………LOL

  6. He deserves this high a ranking just as much as he deserved the Nobel Peace Prize, and for the same number of accomplishments that merited it.
