Majority of GOP Say Donald Trump Better President Than Abe Lincoln

The majority of Republicans say President Trump is a better leader than President Abraham Lincoln, a new poll showed.

In the Economist/YouGov weekly tracking survey,  53% of Republicans said President Trump is a better President compared with 47% who chose America’s 16th President, who led the nation through the Civil War.

Among all Americans, Lincoln beats out President Trump 75% to 25%, with the vast majority of Democrats and independents choosing Mr. Lincoln.

The survey also found 87% of Republicans either somewhat or strongly approve of the job he’s doing as President.

President Trump in July 2018 declared his popularity within the party, telling the London-based Sun newspaper: “You know, a poll just came out that I am the most popular person in the history of the Republican Party… I beat our Honest Abe.”

The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.8 percentage points.
