The US has had several bad presidents. James Buchanan was the president before the Civil War started. Ulysses Grant allowed a lot of corruption as president. Some say William Henry Harrison who caught a cold at his inauguration and died a month after taking office.http://www.worldatlas.com/articles/who-were-the-worst-presidents-in-the-history-of-the-united-states.html
James Buchanan, whom most historians had considered, at least until recently, to be the worst President in the history of the United States, defeated two contenders for the Presidency: John Fremont (the first presidential candidate of the newly-formed Republican Party); and a former President, Millard Fillmore, (the last Whig President). Election Results: Buchanan:174 electoral votes, 1.83 million popular votes Fremont: 114 electoral votes, 1.34 million popular votes Fillmore: 8 electoral votes, 873,000 popular votes
Some say Buchanan
He basically had none. He is really known as being the worst president of all time, because of numerous mistakes he made in office. He caused the panic of 1857, a major economic depression. Also the Buchanan's blunder. The biggest mistake he ever made was probably when South Carolina seceded from the union which caused other states to follow. After the states divided, he made no effort to stop the conflict, which plunged us into the Civil War. (but don't listen to me, I'm an alcoholic).
Judgments of best and worst are subjective, of course, but many historians would agree on James Buchanan. He took absolutely no action when the Southern states started seceding from the Union after the election of 1860 instead of at least trying to prevent the Civil War. Grant and Harding are two other contenders. Millard Fillmore also ranks near the bottom.
president who died in office that is considered to be the worst president
He is known as the "Do nothing President" for good reason. It's what he didn't do that gets him the honor as one of the the worst president of the US. In 1860, as South Carolina seceded from the Union, Buchanan declared that secession was illegal, yet there was nothing he could have done to stop it. Had this issue been tackled, perhaps the Civil War would not have been fought.During his years in office, he oversaw the Dred Scott Decision (which stated that slaves are property, and since the Constitution says that a person cannot be deprived of their property without due process, it was illegal to ban slavery). He hoped Kansas would be admitted as a slave state, but after revolts known as "Bleeding Kansas," it was admitted as a free one.The Panic of 1857 left the economy in a poor state, but Buchanan did not provide assistance to the suffering.
No he is the second worst president next to George Bush.
Yes, he was Uganda's worst President by far.
The president who was worst in spelling was the man who would become our first president. His name is George Washington.
No. Carter was not particularly successful as President, but he was honest and was not the worst ever.
Everything he was the worst president of all time and herbert hoover rules!
Herbert Hoover, Zachary Taylor, Ulysses S. Grant, William Henry Harrison, John Tyler, Warren G. Harding, James Buchanan, Andrew Johnson, Richard M. Nixon, and George W. Bush
The least effective were Wm H Harrison who only served for one month, Andrew Johnson, who finished Lincoln's second term and had a hostile Congress, and probably James Buchanan, who did nothing when the southern states seceded.
The worst president of Haiti was President Michel Martell. Marchers protested their country's high cost of living and government corruption.
