New Poll Shows That America Views Obama As The Best President, Trump As The Worst

As if it wasn’t bad enough that Donald Trump is cooped up at Mar-a-Lago watching his second impeachment trial on TV, a poll has more dire news for the disgraced former president.

According to a new survey from the Economist/YouGov, a plurality of Americans view Barack Obama as the best president in U.S. history, just edging out the 16th president, Abraham Lincoln.

The poll shows that 18 percent of American

adults call Obama the best president in history, while 17 percent give that title to Lincoln.

When it comes to which president was the worst in American history, it wasn’t even close as a near-majority of American adults – 46 percent – give that title to the twice-impeached 45th president, Donald Trump.

Historians and scholars agree: Trump is the worst

While polling can provide interesting snapshots of the current political climate, it’ll likely be up to scholars and historians to determine which presidents were the best and the worst.

On that score, public opinion isn’t off by much.

According to a survey of scholars conducted by the New York Times, Trump is dead last in the ranking of presidents. Obama, on the other hand, clocks in at an impressive number eight, joining greats like Abraham Lincoln and George Washington in the top 10.

Donald Trump’s presidency will forever be remembered as a cyclone of corruption and incompetence that very nearly sent democracy crumbling to the ground. But what will likely anger Trump the most about his legacy is that it will never measure up to that of Barack Obama – or any other president for that matter.
