Trump shares poll showing he's a 'better president' than Obama
President Trump took to Twitter on Thursday morning to share a Twitter poll that shows he is a "better" president than his predecessor, former President Barack Obama.
According to the poll, conducted by the account "Progress Polls," 61 percent believe Trump is the better President of the the United States, compared to 39 percent who cast a vote for Obama. The poll was first tweeted mid-day on August 4, and ended with a total of 28,589 votes.
The retweet from Trump comes as the 45th president faces a wall of unfavorable polling figures from virtually every credible political data source. From voters losing trust to a belief that Trump's presidency is a failure -- the unscientific poll the former billionaire businessman retweeted on Thursday signals a desire to boost his image as favored by the majority of Americans.
On August 1 Progress Polls also ran a poll asking, "Do you think Seth Rich was murdered by the DNC / Clintons?" 52 percent answered "no," while 48 percent answered yes. The conspiracy theory that Seth Rich -- a former DNC staffer -- was murdered by Democratic party leaders was promoted by right-wing media hosts including Sean Hannity, and FOX News was later forced to retract the story they ran on the subject.
