Aims of the 2016 UK Survey of US Presidents

  • To rate, under five categories, all presidents from George Washington to Barack Obama (excepting William Henry Harrison and James Garfield, who were not in office long enough to forge a meaningful record)
  • To rank the US Presidents in terms of their overall performance by aggregating all five categories and of their performance in each individual category
  • To undertake a full assessment of Barack Obama – his scores will receive additional analysis and be used in public communications about the survey.
