The Congressional Tournament has begun to collect votes, so now its time to roll out the Presidential Tournament.
Since people already made their choices pretty clear based on personal preferences back in January, I’m running the Presidential Tournament a little differently.
Alphabetically, here are the twenty-two Presidents who have a first-round bye:
George W. Bush
These are the sixteen Presidents elected more than once, plus the six Presidents whose average Popular Vote percentage was the highest.
Here are the twenty Presidents who are competing the First Round:
John Quincy Adams
George H.W. Bush
Martin Van Buren
For these twenty Presidents, please give a 1 to 10 grade (10 is best) on the following areas of expertise:
Tax and Tariff Policies
Also, please give a 1-10 grade (10 is highest) on the importance of each of those same areas for the following historical periods:
Thanks. This should be fun.
