CRAP !!
The POTUS who consistently ends up on the bottom of this list is James
Buchannan.

Personally, Hoover would be my choice, for ushering in the Great Depression.
People who lost their homes often lived in what were called "Hoovervilles,"
or shanty towns, that were named after President Herbert Hoover. There was
also "Hoover Stew" (food dished out in soup kitchens), "Hoover Blankets"
(newspapers that served as blankets), "Hoover Hogs" (jack rabbits used as
food), and "Hoover Wagons" (broken cars that were pulled by mules). Hoover
was so reviled that he wasn't invited to the opening of Hoover Dam !

Buchannan's "worst" rating centers largely on the issue of Slavery. The only
bachelor to be POTUS, He was a pro-slavery politician who thought the nation’s
increasing moral discomfort with slavery would be resolved by the Supreme
Court’s dreadful Dred Scott decision, the ruling that denied U.S.
citizenship to black residents. He, also tried to help Kansas become a
slavery state. Buchanan, the country’s 15th president, basically rolled out
the red carpet for the Civil War, then gleefully turned the fractured
country over to Lincoln.
