Had all but damn Hayes for a solid 70 seconds. Literally had to start singing the president song to get that president! I even put in Grant first, I think their is no doubt Rutherford B Hayes is the most forgettable president, he wasn't good or bad enough.

He was a very influential president in the country of Paraguay, and is a hero there. He is practically the only reason they exist. Hayes agreed to negotiate a long-held border dispute between Argentina and Paraguay, and the decision gave Paraguay 60 percent of its land. This is the main reason he is viewed as a hero in Paraguay. Hayes was not a bad president by any means either for America

Arthur was pretty forgettable in my opinion, but I’d agree. Hayes was just SO okay at his job.

Well statistically speaking roughly 50% of the general population has an IQ below 100, which should be the mean. But the users of this site skew higher. I guess you could just look at the percentages and see how many there were.

Of all the times I’ve taken this quiz, I still can’t get William Taft

Level 59

My trick to remembering him is he was the one who got stuck in the bathtub (also that he didn't want to be president but instead a supreme court justice but that's not as funny).

How can there be a difference in percentage with the Roosevelts?

Some people probably type both the first and last names without realizing you can just type the last name.

Level 67
Dec 19, 2022
That's because FDR is accepted for Franklin Delano Roosevelt. It's faster than typing Roosevelt. Maybe accept "Teddy" as a type in for Theodore Roosevelt--that is how the teddy bear got its name, after all.

How is Lyndon B Johnson at 77% and Andrew Johnson is at 75%? Can somebody explain that?
+4
Level 55
Nov 9, 2021
Someone typed Lyndon B johnson fully.
+2
Level 84
Feb 21, 2022
Probably because Lyndon was popularly referred to as "LBJ" - which is a type-in for him. It's a similar situation for the Roosevelts - "FDR" is a type-in for Franklin.

You need to fix this topic. We have 46 Presidents.

Level 68
Feb 21, 2022
Grover Cleveland served as both the 22nd and 24th presidents, so while there were 46 presidents, only 45 individual people were ever president

Tyler was a Democrat not a Whig
+2
Level 66
Feb 21, 2022
Wikipedia says Tyler started as a Democrat but switched to Whig due to his opposition to Andrew Jackson during the Nullification Crisis. Either way, he was nominated as William Henry Harrison's running mate from the Whig Party.

Why is this required for the history badge? And with a score of 44?! I dunno, feels like it's too specific for a general history badge
+1
Level 65
Aug 10, 2022
I think this quiz would benefit from using the yellow-box feature (so when you typed in 'roosevelt', only 1 entry would fill in).

Like this, https://www.jetpunk.com/user-quizzes/72360/us-presidents-in-chronological-order

But maybe this quiz is meant to be easier, since it's a badge quiz.

I enjoy taking it to practice, along with the chronological, and the picture quizzes.

When Johnson fills in, I get a ton of presidents for free (L J G H G A C H C M)
