Highest Poll Numbers In The History Of The Republican Party
Wow, highest Poll Numbers in the history of the Republican Party. That includes Honest Abe Lincoln and Ronald Reagan. There must be something wrong, please recheck that poll!

In July 2018, Donald Trump tweeted that he had the highest poll numbers in the history of the Republican Party, including Abraham Lincoln. In an interview with The Sun three days later, he repeated this claim.
While Trump’s approval ratings within his own party were relatively high, there are several fallacies in regards to his statements. First, it is impossible to establish whether his ratings were higher than Lincoln’s.
Polls conducted during that time were non-scientific and no poll numbers for Lincoln exist that could be reasonably compared to Trump’s numbers. The Gallup polls now used to assess approval ratings were not used until 1935.
In addition to this, Trump’s Gallup polls are not higher than any Republic president in history. Politifact compared Trump’s approval ratings at the time he made the claims to past Republican presidential approval ratings during similar points in their presidencies.
- At the time Trump made his claims, his approval rating was 85%. George W. Bush and Dwight Eisenhower polled higher than Trump, with ratings of 96% and 92% respectively.
Next, would he be soldiering on?…..

Trump lying is normal. He’s not too bright and doesn’t think before speaking.
I hate to tell you but Joe Biden beat Trump in Lies told. Pretty close to 4 to 1 , Biden leads
Instead of bringing up more crap on Trump why don’t you concentrate on the idiot in chief right now. He opens his mouth and everything is a lie. If he isn’t lying he is mixing up people, countries, years etc. Trump is out of office, let it go and fact check the current liar in chief.
