The Hill reports:

Former President Trump is the fourth lowest ranking U.S. president, according to C-SPAN’s 2021 President Historians Survey.

C-SPAN’s survey, first conducted in 2000, includes 142 historians, professors and other professional observers of the presidency who gave all former presidents a score from one to 10 in multiple different leadership characteristics. The results are then averaged to tabulate a score.

Trump received a score of 312, giving him a ranking of 41 and placing him above former Presidents Franklin Pierce, Andrew Johnson and James Buchanan. This is Trump’s first time appearing on the list, with the last survey having been released in 2017 when his term had just begun.
