The Presidential Greatness Project was mentioned in the first presidential debate in 2024!

LA Times, February 18, 2024: “Opinion: We know how voters feel about Trump and Biden. But how do the experts rank their presidencies?”

“Our latest rankings also show that the experts’ assessments are driven not only by traditional notions of greatness but also by the evolving values of our time.”
