This pretty much proves that today's GOP isn't a political party anymore, it's a cult of personality.

Who needs "Four score and seven years" when you've got "Covfefe" and "Hamberders"?

From the cited article, the poll results are located here:

The results are over 400 pages, but if you go to page 267, you can see the tabulation of the results of the question about Pres Trump vs fmr Pres Lincoln.

My quick read tells me that a deeper dive is required to find the results cited in the article. Page 267 does not seem to support the summary presented.

Of course they think Trump is better than Lincoln. Much of the Party of Trump would even prefer that Trump reverse the Emancipation Proclamation. BTW, wasn't the Emancipation Proclamation technically an Executive Order?

It's obvious that most Republicans wouldn't know Lincoln if they saw him on a penny. History is the enemy of Trumpism, and Trumpism has sworn undying hostility against it.

In fairness, President Trump does have a pulse.
