Weird that Hayes is in last place... his election was pretty big with the whole "Compromise of 1877"... one of 5 times where the popular vote did not determine the winner of the election (Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, George Bush and Al Gore, Rutherford B. Hayes and Samuel Tilden, Benjamin Harrison and Grover Cleveland and a four-way election between John Q. Adams, Andrew Jackson, Henry Clay and William Crawford)

Democrats are upset when republicans win, republicans are upset when democrats win. It doesn't matter who is president, not everyone is going to be happy. It's sad the way they destroyed part of Washington DC just because they didn't get their way. The election is over, the inauguration is over. Trump is the president and they can't do anything about it. They can destroy their lives trying to change things that can't be changed, or just move away. They just don't understand.

To prove, I know Woodrow Wilson had the first name Thomas; Calvin Coolidge was really John Calvin Coolidge Jr.; William Henry Harrison had the title Sr.; I could go on, but if anyone would like to quiz me (including Quizmaster) they can ask me. I might take a while to respond since I don't check my accounts often.

I have decided to post a comment stating my position on the Trump presidency. Personally, I'm a liberal Democrat who does not approve of Trump's rhetoric and much of his policy so far. The worst thing he has done, in my eye, is abolish the rule enacted by the EPA during Barack Obama's presidency that forbid coal companies from dumping their runoff into streams and rivers. The absolute stupidity of this act, a Congressional Review Act, signed by Trump is enormous. Now, coal companies get to dump filthy runoff into semi-polluted, clean, or already polluted streams and rivers. Yay! Let's cause eutrophication and kill tons of native plants and animals. Best idea ever! My God. This man may have a high IQ according to some sites, but this is stupid. In my state (MD), much of our signature water feature, the Chesapeake Bay, is already heavily polluted after years of carelessness by industrial facilities and citizens alike. Let's not make it worse by sending coal in through rivers.

Actually, Blurr, George Washington really was nonpartisan. It is just that his policies leaned closer to Federalist ideology. So it's right to say that he was a nonpartisan with Federalist leanings. He even intentionally balanced his cabinet just that half or so were Federalists, and half or so were Anti-Federalists. So yes. George Washington was our only independent/nonpartisan president.

"give him a chance"... one of the dumbest memes among SO many dumb memes going around amongst Trump supporters. The man has had and ruined, by my math, in excess of 1,500 chances (sometimes he was given multiple chances in a single day since he started running for president, so this is a conservative estimate) and he's succeeded in failing to meet even the lowest of expectations every single time. "Give him a chance?" Really? Do you go around telling people: hey! Give Nazis a chance! Give polio a chance! Give razor blades in Halloween candy a chance! Give NAMBLA a chance! Give the KKK a chance! Give Genghis Khan a chance! How could you be paying so little attention to think he hasn't been given too many chances and failed more catastrophically than anyone could have feared? How thick is the rock you are living under?

I think asking all talk about politics to stop on a comment section is too much to ask for. Besides, if you think the comment section on this quiz is littered with politics, you should see the comments section on the Bill of Rights quiz.

Frankly, by the normal standards of the internet -- and given the topic of this quiz -- this comment section is pretty civil. There are some obnoxious comments, but mostly people are speaking their minds freely enough and trying to articulate their positions. It's not exactly the Economist, but there are at least mostly-formed ideas being put forth.

Ok ppl. What can be seen throughout different presidents is the hatred of them. It seems politics are destroying the system because ppl HAVE TO CHOOSE SIDES. Now what does that sound like? CIVIL WAR. Its pretty much a question of keep or abolish slavery all over again. Some presidents were good, but truly great presidents only do whats best for their country. There are many ppl out there, and you ppl can judge what i say if this is happening to you, that ppl either love Trump, hate Trump, or agree with a few things and disagree with a few as well. Heres the thing though. EVERYONES OPINION MATTERS. Without opinion, NO ONE would vote. Without opinion, the CIVILS RIGHTS MOVEMENT would not have happened. Maybe voting is good or maybe its bad, but everyone needs to honor Trump as our prez even if ppl hate him. Remember, its ok to have opinions or, to have proven facts against him. If you truly want him out, you can certainly try. But ppl need to stop fighting bc others cant even vote at all

Ok yes I could have, that's true. But, you see, many people don't realize the brutality of the United States. They actually bombed a mosque in Iran when they weren't doing anything. The United States is a brutal country. Respect that Trump is president, even if that's not what you prefer because hey, unless he gets impeached or killed, he will be our prez for at least 4 years. Killing innocent people is a crime, right?

I'm afraid I can only respect Andrew Jackson to a fault. I respect his firmness when it came to the nullification crisis, but I cannot respect his ordering the Cherokees to be removed. The Supreme Court said that he could not remove them, but he ignored the court and did it anyways. I thought, wtf? I saw that Lincoln also ignored the Supreme Court, but he has an excuse: ensuring the South's defeat. As for Trump, I respect his leadership qualities: his drive, relentlessness, boldness, firmness, etc. All I do not respect is merely the substance of what he has tried to enact. I respect many Presidents' leadership qualities (form), but at the same time not what they actually did (substance).

Trump is our president whether you like it or not. Personally I'm glad I wasn't able to vote yet (I turn 18 in 6 months) because I would not have known who to vote for...however either way I respect him as my president and every other American citizen should. Instead of sitting on your a$$ complaining you should be doing something proactive. There may never be a president that will meet all of your expectations and share the exact same interests and thoughts so DEAL WITH IT!

There is a difference between respecting the office of president and respecting the president himself. Telling people to "deal with it" misses the point. The president is always beholden to his constituents. He needs to answer to us, always. I agree the people claiming Trump is somehow "not the president" are silly -- he won. But the notion that we just need to lay back and let him do whatever he wants for four years is absurd. People need to let him know what we think, positive or negative.

I'm not American, so I didn't really know how the Electoral College Vote system worked, looking into it I'm amazed that the self-proclaimed greatest democracy in the world has such a skewed voting system. Someone in Wyoming's vote is worth more than 3 times that of someone in California! What happened to that (American?) quote: 'One Man, One Vote'? Then there's apportioning of the College Votes, some states cast all of their college votes to the local poll winner, some allocate (roughly proportional), some don't even have to take notice of the local poll! There's only 1 person to vote into office - it's a First Past The Post race so why isn't the most basic voting system used? - everyone gets 1 (equal) vote, the winner is the candidate with the most votes.

How could a democracy be self-proclaimed anything? Democracies don't generally make proclamations, do they?

Well your problem is you think that we are a democracy. We are to an extent, but to protect the power of the states, we have the electoral college.

"to protect the power of the state" - looking at the inequities of the electoral college allocation I guess this comment means 'to protect the (greater) power of (some) states' Besides, the President is president of all of the states. I guess US people vote in their State representatives? Then those state representatives should act in accordance with the people's wishes - so there shouldn't be a problem with the people voting directly for the senators. The only problem would be if the state representatives wanted to vote for senators contrary to the people's wishes (which is what occurs in the electoral college system)

That's... not how it works. Even if Trump were impeached, it would be Pence next. Even if the election results were found to be illegitimate by the courts or something (which would be unprecedented in U.S. history), there would be a new election. Hillary is not going to be President unless she runs again and wins. And considering all the negative baggage she carries, that's not likely to happen.
