Trump: I Could Have Beaten Obama
President-elect Donald Trump said on Monday that he could have beaten President Barack Obama in an election.
President Obama said that he thinks he would have won against me. He should say that but I say NO WAY! – jobs leaving, ISIS, OCare, etc.

The Hill reports:
In a CNN podcast hosted by David Axelrod on Monday, Obama said a message of optimism, like his in 2008, could have defeated Trump’s more divisive brand of populism.
Recent approval polls by Rasmussen and Gallup both pin Obama’s approval rating at 56 percent. A Dec. 21 poll from USA Today has Trump at 41 percent — 15 points lower than the outgoing president.
