Yes. The further we progress in the future, the history tends to get compress into quick summaries. A President's time in office is also compress to just include the things they are known for and this small summary will determine their favorability in the future. For example...
-Nixon is known for Watergate and the Southern Strategy (Bad President)
-Reagan is known for ending the Cold War (Good President)
-FDR is known for the New Deal and getting us through WWII (Good President)
-George W Bush will be known for botching Hurricane Katrina and sending the US into an unneeded 8 year war after 9/11 which we would spend about $2 trillion on. (Bad President)
-Obama will be known for being the first black President, Obamacare, ending the 2008 recession, Improving US relations with Cuba and Iran and killing Osama bin Laden. (Current status - Good President)
So far, Obama's memorable accomplishments GREATLY outweighs the negatives things about his Presidency and because of that he will go down in history with a VERY favorable image, especially among the younger people who see him as the "hippest" President we ever had. The only thing that could tarnish Obama's legacy now is if he does something extremely idiotic like start WWIII or endorse Donald Trump.
A lot of right leaning people will disagree, but who cares what they think. There's a reason why they need to nitpick Obama in order pull up dirt about him. When the adversary needs to nitpick at you in order to insult you, then you're doing a pretty damn good job.1
