On September 25 President Trump tweeted:
Republican Party Favorability is the highest it has been in 7 years – 3 points higher than Democrats! Gallup
“Republican Party Favorability is the highest it has been in 7 years” (according to Gallup poll).
The poll he was referring to was this.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Forty-five percent of Americans now have a favorable view of the Republican Party, a nine-point gain from last September’s 36%. It is the party’s most positive image since it registered 47% in January 2011, shortly after taking control of the House in the 2010 midterm elections
We rate this claim: True.
He claims that the Republican favorability is three points higher than that of Democrats. But according to the same Gallup poll,
Republican favorability at 45%, Democrats at 44%
That is a one point difference, not three. We rate this: False.
