    If this deep into this dark age you are taking these sorts of claims seriously then you are an idiot.

    I once had a lot of respect for historians, but currently finding one that both understands history and tries to tell the truth is almost like finding a Unicorn.

    VDH is one.

    Someone on my grapevine was recently saying that Bush the elder was the last President who had any clue what he was doing....one might think that Bush the Younger would have as well but the story on him is that he was always lazy, and his give a fuck was broken.

    It's a survey of professional historians.

    Not a survey of numbskulls on the street.

    A valid representative sampling only has to be adequate to represent the sample population. There aren't millions of professional historians in America.

    Just goes to show you that there is no shortage of idiots in the world. Just for fun since the story is behind a paywall, what was the NYT's source(s)?

    They say the source was 154 professional historians, some self identified as Democrats, some as Republicans, and the Republicans also ranked Trump low on the list - imagine that.

    So there is no actual "source".... self identified "professional historians" means nothing...
    That they accuse you of what they are doing themselves, every...single...time

    That will never work out well in the end for them...
    I'm no fan of Joe Biden, but I wouldn't I wouldn't ever support throwing away the law and the good of the country in exchange for actual hatred...No one should be willing to do that...
    Never be willing to sacrifice anything...including friends, over politics...
