President Obama. He is doing for the average/low income American people what they need and want. And he honestly feels he is doing the right thing. The media and the other 50% of Americans that just hate him for whatever he is or does, are tearing him down and trying to sway public opinion to be unfavorable to him.
I'm surprised people mentioned JFK. He was a good President, but he cheated on his wife. As far as the question goes not enough data is available to make a quantifiable judgement. I agree with what people have said about Carter, but how can we know if Ford was any more or less honest. We have examples of bad moral judgement regarding some of the presidents from this era, but not for all of them.
Reagan, Clinton or GHW Bush. Go back to 1860? Honest Abe. And so says a CNN poll. Clinton lied about Monica, I give him a black mark. Reagan lied about Iran-Contra, similarly. "Lincoln continues to rank at the top in all categories because he is perceived to embody the nation's avowed core values: integrity, moderation, persistence in the pursuit of honorable goals, respect for human rights, compassion," Howard University's Edna Medford added.Founding father?George Washington?finished second in the new survey, followed by?Franklin D. Roosevelt, Theodore Roosevelt, and Harry Truman, in that order.Bill Clinton registered the greatest gain among recent presidents, jumping from 21st to 15th in the survey.
