Most popular President... Rankings have been George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, or Franklin D. Roosevelt. Best ranking out of current, still living, goes to Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. Both tied with an 8th ranking. Have to go all the way back to Eisenhower and Truman for popularity at some point to crack the top 5. Trump was way off base...geese (best ranking was 42nd). Regan's best ranking was 6th.
