So essentially if Charles Edward Stuart had successfully deposed George II and established Stuart rule.
Better or worse than the Hanoverians?
Would it have been better or worse if the Stuarts had retained the throne? watch

Even if he had he probably wouldn't have lasted very long at all. So, I doubt it would have been better.

Worse since the Stuarts ruled(or tried to) as an absolute monarchy.
As above he wouldn't have lasted, once Charles I got the chop there was no going back to unchecked royal power.
