The change in GOP rankings since 2018, when the last survey was conducted, is striking. In 2018, Republicans ranked Reagan first (36%), followed by Trump (10%). Now, the positions are reversed, with the percentage of Republicans who name Trump as the best President ever having tripled to 36%, twice the number who still choose Ronald Reagan (18%).
Barack Obama has maintained his support among Democrats compared to 2018 (33% to 34%), with FDR (19%) and Lincoln (17%) next. Kennedy takes fourth place among Democrats with 7% calling him the best president in history.
