According to President Donald Trump, the survey showed that he bypassed President Abraham Lincoln, despite the fact that the presidential poll did not exist at the time of the 16th Commander-in-Chief.
“You know, there has just been a poll that showed that I am the most popular person in the history of the Republican Party – 92 percent. I walked around Lincoln, “Trump told The Sun in an interview a few hours before he landed in the United Kingdom for a two-day visit. “I defeated our Honest Abe.”
However, Lincoln died ten years before the phone used for the survey was at least invented, and 80 years before the poll began, the tangential popularity of the presidents.
It’s unclear what Trump meant. The Gallup poll from mid-June showed that 90 percent of Republicans approved it, which, according to The New York Times, would make him the second most popular modern president in his political party at this stage of this term. Meanwhile, among the Republicans, the first place is occupied by President George W. Bush.
