If his presidency ended now, Republican President George W. Bush would go down in history as a failure, according to a majority of US college history and political science professors surveyed nationwide. And, 67 percent of the 744 professors responding to the survey conducted by Siena College's Research Institute said they doubted Bush "has a realistic chance of improving his rating" during his remaining time in office. In Siena's 2002 ranking of all the nation's 42 presidents (Grover Cleveland was president on two separate occasions), Bush came in mid-pack at No. 23, one spot behind his father, showing that opinion of the administration has declined significantly since 9/11. There was a difference in rating Bush given the professors' disciplines. Two-thirds of history teachers said his presidency would rate as a failure while just under half of political science professors leveled that assessment.
