Donald Trump beats out Abraham Lincoln as a better President, the majority of Republicans say in a new poll.
Donald Trump was rated above Abraham Lincoln by a majority of Republicans surveyed in a recent poll conducted by The Economist and YouGov.
Conducted between Sunday and Tuesday this week, the survey asked a random sample of 1,500 adults several questions about Donald Trump as part of a weekly tracking poll.
Among the questions asked of respondents was to consider both Donald Trump and Abraham Lincoln and answer, “Which Republican president was better?”
Of all people surveyed 62% picked Abraham Lincoln as the better president, but most Republicans answered otherwise: Among respondents identified as Republicans, 53% chose Donald Trump as the better president and 47% named Abraham Lincoln.
