A new poll conducted by the Pew Research Center has found 40 percent of those polled placed President Obama as the best, or second-best president in their lifetime, according to an article in The Hill.

The Pew survey was conducted from June 5 to June 12 and involved 2,002 adults. The poll found that 44 percent placed President Obama as the best, or second-best, followed by 33 percent voting for Bill Clinton and 32 percent remembering Ronald Reagan as the best president. Current President Donald Trump received 19 percent.

The poll found millenials were most likely to vote Obama as the best, whereas older Americans had a fondness for Ronald Reagan.

According to The Hill, the results were also split among party lines, with 71 percent of Democrat, or Democrat-leaning respondents placing Obama as their favorite and 57 percent of Republican, or Republican-leaning respondents saying Reagan was the best president in their lifetime.
