The average US president has been charged with 1.9 felonies.
The fact is a result of former President Donald Trump being a statistical outlier: he alone has been charged with 91 felonies.
He’s officially become the “Spiders Georg” of world leaders.

Forty-five men have been elected president of the United States. Before Donald Trump, the average number felonies charged per president was zero. Following Monday night’s indictment, that number now stands at 1.9.

Trump has been charged with a whopping 91 felonies total across four indictments, two federal and one each in Georgia and New York.

He faces charges around allegations he paid off an adult film star, mishandled classified documents at his Mar-A-Lago residence, and tried to overturn the 2020 presidential election.

Trump has become an unfortunate statistical outlier in the nation’s 247-year history, comparable only to “Spiders Georg,” a fictional person dreamed up by a Tumblr user who “lives in cave & eats over 10,000 [spiders] each day” and is solely responsible for upping the average number of spiders eaten by each person per year.

Despite the litany of felony charges levied against him, Trump is comfortably in the lead in GOP presidential primary polling. According to an average of national polls deemed “major” by FiveThirtyEight, Trump currently draws in an average of 52.7% support, nearly 38 percentage points ahead of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who’s in second place.
