It's the same reason as the proof that the earth is flat

They weren't. If you heard that from some place they were lying to you.
A good rule of thumb is to never ever ever ever ever ever ever believe anything you hear on conservative social media. An awful lot of the people on there will knowingly lie to you in order to brainwash you. The lions share of the rest of the people will uncritically pass on information they get that reinforces their confirmation bias. You need to be extremely careful of information you get from right wing media sources as well. Some of them, such as Breitbart or anything else which is mostly just a web presence, will knowingly lie to you in order to brainwash you. Even Fox, which has genuine reporting it does, will actively distort the news with an aim to brainwash you. You should never get your information from the Fox opinion hosts, like Hannity, because these guys are pure propaganda who see their job not as giving you accurate information but giving you information which will keep you on the Republican side. In terms of information value, watching Hannity is like reading Pravda during the Cold War. It's pure propaganda and the tiny amount of actual information you're going to get is outweighed massively by the disinformation.
As for popularity levels, Trump is much less popular than Obama. The lowest approval rating that Obama ever got in his presidency was 40%. That's the lowest. He was never lower than that. Trump has never gotten above 50% approval in his presidency, ever. He's the only president in the history of opinion polling to hold that distinction. But he's got another distinction which is relevant to this discussion. Trump's average approval rating over the course of his presidency, so far, is about 40%. So his average approval rating is basically the same as Obama's all time low approval rating.

I do not trust polls. Any of them, by anyone.

If you know what the word "consistently" means then you'll note that what you claim is hogwash, as Obama was consistently above him. (Can't find more recent, think this goes until around August, but no matter... the consistent pattern of Obama being above him is clear.)
Trump has never even been at half, and Obama a plenty of time above it.
