The average IQ is 90-100.

The most accurate source to know the U.S. Presidents IQ is the IQ estimations made by academics.

Well! Now I'm more confuse than ever regarding the estimated IQ of the U.S. Presidents and some worthy candidates. 

No matter the sources, it seem that the above estimations and maybe some actual tests are hard to take seriously. 

Whether you like them or not, every U.S. Presidents and runners-up are people with superior intellect and impressive background. 

Is an IQ test or a so-called IQ estimation can prove if a President or candidate is more worthy than another?

I don't think so!
