A recent survey of more than eight thousand college students shows that most agree Barack Obama was the greatest U.S. president ever.
Earlier this month, the College Pulse found 22 percent of those polled believe Barack Obama was the greatest president.
Veteran conservative columnist Deroy Murdock, a member of Project 21, vehemently disagrees.
"For people of any age to think that he was not just an 'OK' president or a good president, but the very best president of the 45 we've had starting with Washington,” Murdock says, “that he would be the best, I think, is just a complete nonstarter."
Murdock predicts the results of the survey are an indication that today's students, K through 12 and postsecondary students, are not adequately being taught about our country's history.
"The fact that Obama appeared as best president on this survey says to me, if nothing else, that these students need to learn more about U.S. history,” he says. “Even if you think Obama was a success and did good things, it's very hard to say he was indeed our very best president."
Coming in second was Franklin D. Roosevelt followed by Abraham Lincoln, both with 14 percent.
The survey shows that six percent believe Donald Trump has been the best president to date.
