President Donald Trump is obsessed with former President Barack Obama.
For years, Trump peddled racist conspiracy theories that Barack Obama wasn't born in the United States. When Obama made his birth certificate public, Trump claimed it was a fabrication.
Even now that Trump has become Obama's successor, he still blames Obama for nearly every failure of the Trump administration, and takes credit for every achievement of the Obama administration, such as Obama's economy and Veterans Choice legislation.
After Obama appeared to allude to the White House's ineptitude regarding the pandemic that's killed over 90 thousand Americans, the current President went postal.
Trump began flinging allegations about "Obamagate"—despite being unable to list a specific crime committed by the President.
Despite Trump's years-long smear campaign against Barack Obama, a new poll indicates that it hasn't been working.
A national survey from Public Policy Polling found that if an election between Barack Obama and Donald Trump was held today, Obama would beat Trump by 11 points.

The poll of over 1200 voters consisted of 41 percent Democrats, 36 percent Republicans, and 23 percent Independents.
People weren't surprised by the results, and wanted to make sure Trump saw them.

Though Obama handily beats Trump people still felt 43 percent support for the current President was too much.

Why is not this 99 and 44/100% for Obama? https://t.co/HS7avlHDm2— Curley (@Curley)1590059000.0
Obama's win in the poll could mean good things for his former Vice President and likely 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden in November—but only if people vote.
Obama's memoir, The Audacity of Hope, is available here.
