Who is the better president, Trump or Lincoln?

The answer is obvious - right? Not if you ID as a republican.. Honestly... I can't come up with an explanation for this...

article: [thehill.com] Poll pdf: [d25d2506sfb94s.cloudfront.net]

The Economist/YouGov weekly tracking poll surveyed 1,500 Americans from Nov. 24 to Nov. 26 and has a margin of error of 2.8 percentage points.

The obvious question is 'what the hell is wrong with republicans?' but I have other questions - like what's up with that 6% of DEMS that think Trump is better than Lincoln or the 9% of 'Liberals' that think Trump is better than Lincoln. WTH USA?

We were warned about the coming 'dumbing' down of America 40 years ago, we are now seeing the reality of it.

Maybe this is an indication of how far backwards his base feels we need to go in order to be "great again". Seems like before the Civil War is what they're looking for.

I notice four key data points on that table:

1) How voters voted in the 2016 election seems a very good indicator of their belief. Perhaps it's just a matter of convincing themselves they voted correctly in 2016?

2) Really you're talking about those who have conservative ideology, maybe same issue as #1?

3) Perhaps unsurprisingly, regional differences don't matter much, unless you're talking about the South and somewhat the West.

4) Again perhaps unsurprisingly, the black racial group is the major one that disagrees with this statement.

Conclusions? You're talking mostly about Southern white conservatives who voted for Trump in 2016?

Is anyone actually surprised by this?

Nah, it's much higher apparently.

I’ll agree when Trump’s presidency ends the same way....

When your Lord and Saviour is the earthly reincarnation of God himself, how could he be anything other than the best human the world has ever seen? Hallelujah! (Wait, is that a foreigner word?)
