A survey conducted by the Pew Research Center found most Americans believe Barack Obama has done the best job in their lifetime.

2,002 adults were surveyed for the study and asked which president had done the best job in their lifetime and which president was second-best.

44% said Obama did the best or second best job in their lifetime. He was followed by Bill Clinton (33%), and Ronald Reagan (32%).

President Donald Trump ranked fourth, totaling 19% and was followed by George W. Bush (14%), John F. Kennedy (12%), and H.W. Bush (10%).

The survey found Millennials were more likely to name Obama as one of the best presidents compared to older generations who believed Reagan was one of the best.
