President Donald Trump claimed in a tweet early this morning that his approval numbers within the GOP are higher than Abraham Lincoln‘s and Ronald Reagan‘s.
Wow, highest Poll Numbers in the history of the Republican Party. That includes Honest Abe Lincoln and Ronald Reagan. There must be something wrong, please recheck that poll!

Trump recently made this same claim in an interview.
It’s not clear what this is a reference to, but for the record presidential polling was not around when Lincoln was president.
