    Default Trump: I had higher polling #'s than LINCOLN, "I beat our Honest Abe."

    Yep, Trump is more popular than Abraham Lincoln. I wonder how they conducted polling data in the mid-1800s? In the middle of a Civil War?

    By the way since he was in EUROPE, he was boasting about this while overseas? Is he trying to PUMP UP Putin's opinion of him?

    Trump says recent poll shows he's more popular than Lincoln

    President Trump boasted about a poll on Thursday that he claims shows he's more popular than former President Lincoln.

    “You know, a poll just came out that I am the most popular person in the history of the Republican Party,” Trump said in an interview with The Sun published on Thursday.
    “Beating Lincoln,” Trump said. “I beat our Honest Abe.”

    It is unclear what poll the president was referring to in the interview, as presidential approval polling did not exist during the presidency of Abraham Lincoln.
    Trump earlier this week made a similar claim that appeared to refer to a Gallup poll indicating he is one of the most popular modern Republican presidents.
    "New Poll says Trump, at over 90%, is the most popular Republican in history of the Party. Wow!" he tweeted....

    “But the people of the U.K., and I’ll bet if you had an honest poll, I’d be very strong. They want the same thing I want. I love the U.K.,” Trump told The Sun.

    And this jewel... (Thin skinned POS)...

    “I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London,” Trump said. “I used to love London as a city. I haven’t been there in a long time. But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?”
