As former President Donald Trump is in the midst of his second impeachment trial, more bad news is coming his way. A new poll has ranked him as the worst president in the nation’s history. Who was voted the best? Barack Obama.
The Economist/YouGov Poll consisted of 1,500 surveyed adult participants and was conducted between Feb. 6 and Feb. 9. Each person was asked 110 questions concerning the country. Among them were the questions of who they thought was the best president in US history and who was the worst.

In terms of the best, Obama, the 44th president, was ranked number one with 18%. Abraham Lincoln came in second place with 17% and Trump came in third with 13%.
Although Obama’s margin of victory in the poll as best president was narrow, when it came to the question of who was the worst President, Trump won in a landslide. The 45th President garnered 46% of the vote, while Obama came in second place with 24%. Third place went to Richard Nixon with 5% of the votes.
The Jan. 6 Capitol riots may have had an impact on some of the respondent’s opinion of Trump. When asked how much of the riots was Trump’s responsibility, the poll showed that 43% said “a lot” of the responsibility fell on him, while 30% felt “none” of it did. CONTINUE READING FROM SOURCE >>>>>>
