When the same question was posed to Republicans, 44 percent said Washington was a better president than Donald Trump.

“There is a combination of factors at work when you ask a question like this. Democrats may be more likely than Republicans to be influenced by recency bias, valuing what they are familiar with over historical opinion. It’s a fun question to ask, but I’m not sure what it means,”  Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute, said in a press release.

Overall, 58 percent of respondents said Washington was a better president than Obama.

Monmouth’s poll follows a YouGov/Economist survey conducted in November, which found that a majority of Republicans think Trump is a better president than Abraham Lincoln.
