President Trump early Thursday shared an online poll from earlier this week showing he is a better president than his predecessor.

Trump retweeted a post by ProgressPolls that asked respondents whether Trump or former President Obama is a better leader of the U.S.

The poll, which says it surveyed 25,589 respondents, showed 61 percent chose Trump, compared with 39 percent who said Obama was a better president.


ProgressPolls has also asked its followers recently about whether they think the U.S. is heading to war with North Korea and about whether the wage gap for women is real.

Trump often rails against polls, urging Americans not to trust them.

In a tweet earlier this week, Trump touted his accomplishments and blasted poll numbers.

"After 200 days, rarely has any Administration achieved what we have achieved..not even close! Don't believe the Fake News Suppression Polls!" he tweeted.

In another tweet, the president claimed his base was bigger and stronger than ever before despite the "phony Fake News polling."

Recent polls from media outlets have shown Trump hitting new lows in his job approval ratings as Republicans struggle to accomplish key agenda goals.
