Despite being in office for only one term and having one of the most unpopular presidencies, a new Quinnipiac poll shows former President Jimmy Carter is believed to "have the best post presidency," even surpassing former President Ronald Reagan.

According to the poll, when asked who has done the most work since leaving office, American voters said:
  • Former President Jimmy Carter, 40 percent of American voters, including 29 percent of Republicans and 49 percent of Democrats.
  • President Ronald Reagan, 24 percent;
  • President Bill Clinton, 19 percent;
  • George W.  Bush, 6 percent;
  • President George H.W. Bush, 5 percent.
"Pummeled for his presidency, but praised for how he conducted his post White House life, Jimmy Carter far surpasses Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton for what he accomplished once he left the Oval Office," aid Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

On the long list of accomplishments since leaving office, Carter received the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts "to find peaceful solutions to international conflicts, to advance democracy and human rights, and to promote economic and social development," Politico reports.

The 91-year-old former president is also recognized for working with Habitat for Humanity and founding the Carter Center, a non-profit organization in conjunction with Emory University that does humanitarian and peacemaking work around the world.

Quinnipiac conducted the poll Oct. 29-Nov. 2, surveying 1,144 registered voters nationwide via landlines and cellphones. The margin of error is plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
