President Donald Trump has played more golf in his first three months in office than President Barack Obama did, but a new a poll shows that many Trump voters don't believe as much.
A Thursday poll from the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling shows that 53% of respondents who said they voted for Trump in November said Obama had outpaced Trump on trips to the golf course during each president's first three months in office. Just 20% of Trump voters said Trump played more golf, while 27% said they were unsure.
Those who said they voted for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton overwhelmingly said Trump played more golf than Obama did during that time — 72% said Trump played more golf during his first 90 days. Just 9% said Obama did, while 19% said they were unsure.
Among all respondents, 48% said Trump played more golf, while 28% said Obama did. Nearly one in four respondents said they were unsure.
During his first three months in office, Trump spent 19 days at a golf course and played golf on at least 13 occasions, according to The New York Times.
The Times found that Obama spent no days at a golf course during his first three months. Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton also spent either no time or very little time golfing during their first 90 days — Bush made no trips to a golf course, while Clinton spent three days at courses.
