Closing Thought–03Dec19

We have all heard our dear president make the wild claim that he is more popular than Abe Lincoln….well there is some good news for all those Trump supporters that are always looking for something they can say about the this president.

A new poll shows that Repubes like Trump better than Lincoln…..and that should tell what a mental capacity the party is appealing to at this time.

President Trump’s polling dream has become a reality. A new Economist/YouGov weekly survey says 53% of Republicans consider Trump a better president than Abraham Lincoln, compared to 47% for Honest Abe, the Hill reports. But across parties and independents, Lincoln still wins by a firm 75% to 25%. Maybe the Economist wanted to test Trump’s 2018 boast to the Sun that he was “the most popular person in the history of the Republican Party. Beating Lincoln. I beat our Honest Abe.”

What he meant was unclear, but at the time he also tweeted that “over 90%” of Republicans gave him a thumbs up, making him “the most popular Republican in [the] history of the Party. Wow!” That was nearly an accurate reflection of a Gallup poll that gave him a 90% approval rating among Republicans—making him the GOP’s most popular modern president save for George W. Bush just after 9/11, the New York Times reported.

Sorry I do not see it!  No accounting for taste!

  1. Lincoln took the country back to a form of unification after a civil war. Whatever else I think about him, that was an achievement. I try not to take sides, but Trump’s childish utterances in London today have exasperated me.
    Best wishes, Pete.
