Greatest US President Knockouts, Quarterfinal: Harry S Truman (seeded 7) v John Quincy Adams (seeded 18). Seeds from Wikipedia aggregate of polls, 1-3 rounds per day. Current bracket status at link.
I think this is the weakest bracket. Whoever wins will probably be eliminated next round by either Kennedy or Washington.
How has Quincy Adams survived so far? He only served 1 term and didn't accomplish much
That's what I was going to say. Why are people supporting him?
Weak opposition. JQ Adams had a first-round bye like about half the field, benefited from an anti-LBJ vote in the next round, then beat another surprise advancer in Coolidge in the weakest pairing of the round of 16.
He lowered the national debt from $16 million to $5 million. He managed to advance many internal improvement projects (though not as many as he'd hoped), and was probably the greatest diplomat and foreign policy expert in American History.
He shouldn't have beat Coolidge though.
Most of his foreign policy success was when he was Secretary of State. He was definitely one of the best Secretary of State's but this is about his presidency
Like I said he improved the internal country, and lowered the debt.
