A majority of Republicans say President Trump is a better leader than former President Lincoln, according to this week’s Economist/YouGov weekly tracking poll.

Fifty-three percent of Republicans said Trump was a better president than Lincoln, while 47 percent chose the Civil War-era leader.

Lincoln still overwhelmingly beats Trump among all Americans, 75 percent to 25 percent, with the vast majority of Democrats and independents choosing the former president.

Astonishing! I grew up in Charleston, Illinois about 12 miles from one of Lincoln's log cabins. and often rode my bicycle out there when I was in junior high school.


This vote by Republicans is shocking and would make him turn over in his grave, if he knew what such a comparison implied for this nation.

People should go to the poll and you will see that article was very dishonest. In fact, Trump was the least favored by far when compared to Reagan and both Bushes. I can't recall if Nixon and Ike were included, but in any case, he was the least favored of all the Republican Presidents included in the survey. He also trailed any Democrat candidate in the upcoming election. Plus the poll did not show a vote for "just" Republicans, so I don't know where they got that data; it merely said 1500 people were polled, not 1500 Republicans as the article implies.

I think you're referring to the media slant on the poll, not the poll itself. The only way that the poll could be "dishonest", would be if the respondents didn't actually say what the pollsters say they said. And the fact that Republicans apparently believe George W. Bush was even more of a greater president than Abraham Lincoln hardly excuses them for being the asinine, ludicrous collection of ignorant, venal half wits that they are.
