A recent poll revealed the majority of Americans consider President Trump a better GOP leader than Abraham Lincoln. The Economist and YouGov poll released on Friday showed 53 percent of U.S. adult citizens view President Trump as a better Republican president than Abraham Lincoln.

Researchers surveyed 1,500 American adults of all political affiliations earlier this week, including Democrats, Independents and Republicans.

Some speculated the poll was fueled by comments from President Trump, who compared himself to Lincoln in the past.

“With the exception of the late, great Abraham Lincoln, I can be more presidential than any president that has ever held this office,” stated the president.

The poll was taken just after the second round of impeachment hearings concluded. Some argued it shows how little the probe and mainstream media have affected the nation’s perception of President Trump.
