A majority of Republicans say President Trump is a better leader than former President Abraham Lincoln, according to this week’s Economist/YouGov weekly tracking poll.

Fifty-three percent of Republicans said Trump was a better president when compared to Lincoln, while 47 percent chose the Civil War-era leader.

Lincoln still overwhelmingly beats Trump among all Americans, 75 percent to 25 percent, with the vast majority of Democrats and Independents choosing the former president.

On a happy trail
A bird in the hand is worth two in the grave and the GOP tends to put pragmatism over ideology.

And don't think they don't have tons of shit on Trump not to mention the ability to use the popularity of impeachment against him. The whole GOP has become a quid pro quo party.

You mean of the republicans polled and those who either became republican or remain republican. Most of my friends and family that I grew up with are no longer members of the party and are wondering what the hell happened to it. Those that remain are just like Trump. wealthy narcisssists whose only care is about remaining wealthy and seeing America dominated by WASPS. They think the poor laborers that do all the hard work for them and their corporations, owe them their millions and billions. No different than all those plantation owners that didn't seem to notice or didn't care if they did, all those that provided the labor that made them wealthy plantation owners.

Trump's immorality and sins don't matter, only those of anyone that takes note of Trump's immorality and sins. In fact, in the eyes of Trump and Trumpians, taking note of Trump's immorality sins, crimes, unethical behavior, lies, etc. is considered "sinful".

America may be experiencing a revolution of independence from what has become an oligarchy based on wealth. Not that all wealthy people are greedy, gluttonous, self serving, selfish people seeking genetic "purity" or "singularity" and dominance, but those that are, appear to have a desire and are working to take full control of the nation and doing so in many ways, by floating false narratives and presenting false promises.

While this is nothing new in history or totally to the U.S., but for the level it has gotten to.

Will the side of "doing the right thing" (a government of the people, by the people and for the people (not just rich people) prevail in the struggle or will the side of doing the wrong thing (a government of the rich white people, by the rich white people and only for the rich white people") prevail?

Do unto others as we would like others, to do unto us. Some people appear to be afraid of how others would do unto them, because of the way they have done unto others.

The inequitable dominance of wealth, power and influence is nothing new to history and the founders of this nation well well acquainted with it and sought solutions to reduce it as a factor in the formation of their new goverments.

"In order to prove this assertion, I shall premise two propositions, which have never been controverted: First, where there is wealth, there will be power; and, secondly, the rich have always been an over-match for the poor in all contests for power."

"These truths being admitted, I desire to know what can prevent our single representation being filled, in the course of a few years, with a majority of rich men? Say not, the people will not choose such men to represent them. The influence of wealth at elections is irresistible. It has been seen and felt in Pennsylvania, and I am obliged in justice to my subject to say, that there are poor men among us as prepared to be influenced, as the rich are prepared to influence them. The fault must be laid in both cases upon human nature. The consequence of a majority of rich men getting into the legislature is plain. Their wealth will administer fuel to the love of arbitrary power that is common to all men. The present Assembly have furnished them with precedents for breaking the Constitution. Farewell now to annual elections! Public emergencies will sanctify the most daring measures. The clamours of their constituents will be silenced with offices, bribes or punishments. An aristocracy will be established, and Pennsylvania will be inhabited like most of the countries in Europe, with only two sorts of animals, tyrants and slaves."
