Presidents Ranked by Agenda and Persuasion


Recommended Posts

This calculated whether or not a president's agenda is significantly future-oriented, the relative charisma of the president, the relative oratorical speaking abilities of the president, their relative ability to use current modes of communication to reach the electorate, and in an effort to calculate effectiveness of persuasion, I include whether or not the president was reelected, renominated, saw gains in Midterms, controlled both houses of Congress, won the PV by 10%+ margin, etc.
