A majority of Americans say that Barack Obama is the best president of their lifetime, according to a new survey.

A Pew Research Center poll released this week shows that Obama is the most common response when Americans were asked which president did the best job in their lifetime. A total of 44 percent of Americans said that Obama was either the best or second-best during their lives, and 31 percent put Obama at No. 1.

Donald Trump, who frequently takes aim at his predecessor, came in fourth on the poll behind Obama, Bill Clinton, and Ronald Reagan. As ABC News noted, Obama has seen a rise in popularity since leaving office.

“While 19 percent might seem low, 20 percent of Americans ranked Obama as the best or second best president in 2011, at a similar point in his first term and the last time Pew conducted this poll,” the report noted.
