What are the criteria you want us to rate him on? A poll without any definitions is meaningless.

Below 0, of course.

A human being that deserves to be called a human being does not bomb a hospital, killing a pregnant woman and her baby.

That he has been allowed to rape Russia for twenty years is a crime against humanity.

I voted "1" based on the "below 1" option because it effectively breaks the scale. Is he very bad? Yes. Is he "Pol Pot who murdered a quarter of the population of Cambodia" bad? No. Hitler bad? No. Stalin bad? No. Mao Zedong bad? No. I mean, hell, is he even Xi Jinping bad? No.

Could he get that bad? Probably.

I mean, right now he's a run of the mill monster on the world stage compared to that crowd.

Edit: If I had to name a historical parallel to Putin, I'd probably pick Benito Mussilini.

I thought of including below zero as an option.
You can see "below one" as also below zero.

What are we rating him on? Looks? As a person? political leader? father? Gay icon?
