According to a recent The Economist/YouGov poll, 41% of Americans find Donald Trump to be the worst president the nation has ever had.
The 1,500 participants in the survey, which was conducted from August 19 to 21, were free to choose any individual who has ever held the high office, but most appear to have stuck with those who’ve served more recently.
Barack Obama was, with 28%, named the second worst president in U.S. history. Notably, Obama was also named the second best, coming in at 16%, just one point behind all-time-favorite Abraham Lincoln.
Trump earned 6% in the greatest category, which goes against his numerous assertions of being the most beloved U.S. leader ever.
For example, in June when tweeting about the FBI raid on his then-attorney Michael Cohen’s office he wrote, “The good news is that your favorite President did nothing wrong!”
“We should have a contest as to which of the Networks, plus CNN and not including Fox, is the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted in its political coverage of your favorite President (me),” he suggested last year.
