One should keep this poll in mind the next time that anyone in the media or the Democratic Party suggests that Democrats need to win over Republicans to be successful. While there are persuadable Republicans within the electorate that Democrats should speak to, the majority of Trump’s party is so brainwashed into following this president that they actually believe that he is a better president than Abraham Lincoln.
Without Lincoln, there would be no United States of America. Donald Trump’s best day in office is no match for the accomplishments of Lincoln.
A majority of the Republican Party supports Trump to the point of worship. They swallow lies and tell themselves that they taste like facts.
Republicans are out of step with the rest of the country, as 75% of the country rated Lincoln as better than Trump.
The majority of the Republicans in this poll are not only out of touch. They may also be out of their minds.
