Coolidge rising so much in administrative skills is pretty surprising. I am obviously a fan of his style, but this is one thing I didn't expect from this group of rankers/historians.

Lots of Conservatives rose in the C-Span ranking overall:

  • Eisenhower +4
  • Coolidge +3
  • Monroe +2
  • Reagan +2
  • Madison +2
  • McKinley +1

However, in regards to "this group of historians." Historians generally rank Coolidge low. From 1948-1996, Coolidge was generally a top 10 worst president -- he was top 5 worst on at least one occasion. He's improved somewhat since then. His best ranking among a major ranking study was in 2005 when he was #23 overall. In this 2021 study, he is #24. His worst was #36 of 41.

This is why I was surprised to see him jumping so many people in the administrative skills area. I'll have to look into who he jumped, as that might explain some more things.

In admin skill, he jumped Clinton, Cleveland, Van Buren, Nixon, Jackson, Ford, Hayes, and Carter since 2000.
