image for 42% of Voters Say Trump Will Be Known as 'One of Worst' Presidents in History: Fox News Poll

In a recent Fox News poll, 42 percent of respondents said that history would remember President Donald Trump as one of the worst presidents of all time.

The survey method also used proportionate numbers of respondents from each state meant to reflect the number of voters in each state.

The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

A November 30 Gallup poll showed Biden's favorability rating to be 55 percent—6 percent higher than Trump's record-high of 49 percent last April.

While 12 percent of Republicans expressed a favorable opinion of Biden, only 3 percent of Democrats had a favorable opinion of Trump.

Independents also preferred Biden to Trump, with 55 percent having a favorable opinion of Biden compared to 36 percent for the president.

After Trump won the 2016 election, his Gallup favorability rating rose from 34 percent to 42 percent. »
