Gallup: President Trump, Obama Tied for America’s Most Admired Man

Gallup: President Trump, Obama Tied for America’s Most Admired Man

Each earned 18%, with no other man earning more than 2%

Gallup published its annual poll concerning America’s most admired man and woman, and this year’s results were pretty interesting.

Despite three solid years of Democrats and their media cohorts relentlessly attacking and tearing down President Trump, he has climbed to the top spot, a position he shares with former president Obama.

Gallup reports:

Barack Obama and Donald Trump are tied this year as the most admired man. It is Obama’s 12th time in the top spot versus the first for Trump. Michelle Obama is the most admired woman for the second year in a row.

Each year since 1948, Gallup has asked Americans to name, in an open-ended fashion, which man and woman living anywhere in the world they admire most. This year’s results are based on a Dec. 2-15 poll.

Americans’ choice for most admired man this year is sharply divided along party lines: 41% of Democrats name Obama, while 45% of Republicans choose Trump. Relatively few Democrats choose Trump and relatively few Republicans pick Obama, while independents’ choices are divided about equally between the two men.

After Obama and Trump, no other man was mentioned by more than 2% of respondents. The remainder of the top 10 for men this year includes former President Jimmy Carter, businessman Elon Musk, philanthropist and Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Pope Francis, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, California Rep. Adam Schiff, the Dalai Lama, and investor Warren Buffett.

Here’s the breakdown from Gallup:

Michelle Obama was named the most admired woman in this poll, with 10% of the vote.

The 10% naming [Michelle] Obama this year is down from 15% last year. The 2018 poll was conducted shortly after she released her bestselling autobiography.

Current first lady Melania Trump finished second this year, mentioned by 5%, with former talk show host Oprah Winfrey, Clinton and teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg named by 3% of U.S. adults each. The remainder of the top 10 for women includes Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley.

Gallup also notes that Trump is more popular than he’s been for the past two years.

Trump is more popular now than he was in the past two years, with a 45% job approval rating, among his best as president. Coincident with the rise in his job approval rating, the 18% of Americans currently naming Trump as the most admired man is also up, from 13% in 2018 and 14% in 2017. Increased mentions of Trump as the most admired man have come almost exclusively among his fellow Republicans — 32% of Republicans named Trump in 2018 and 35% did so in 2017.

Somewhere, Nancy Pelosi is kicking herself for not sticking to her initial—and correct—assessment of the folly of impeaching Trump along partisan lines and without public support.

The worst part is that the Dems who voted for BHO are going to vote in November this year

    Maybe not.

    They have to have a nominee first! Snark.

    Poll? HA! All Media Polls from the MSM are total LIES.

    Nuff said.

    The very fact, that the Obama’s, are “still”, so revered in America, is a very sad testimonial to the intellect, { or lack thereof}, of the American voter! This sad fact, is a “real indicator”, that the voters are not responsible to review the performance of the candidate, as it relates to our Constitution!

    America….get real….Obama’s are not friends of America! Bathhouse Barry, imported hundreds of thousands of Muslims, to vote here, & they “hate American’s/Christians/capitalism, & our very way of life! How can that be “good”, for us, when they run for office,get in, & wreak havoc on our system? Low IQ voters, are bringing us “down”!

…And hillary clinton is ahead by 95 percent.

Obama popular? The creep who got PDJT elected, along with every GOP governor in 2016?

Galloping b.s.

Who did they poll, because looking at their top ten, I’m not seeing admirable people.

    *double checks*

    Oh this was a different poll from the one I last looked at.

      UnCivilServant in reply to UnCivilServant. | December 31, 2019 at 12:38 pm

      *triple checks* Nope, it was the list I remember

      The remainder of the top 10 for men this year includes former President Jimmy Carter, businessman Elon Musk, philanthropist and Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Pope Francis, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, California Rep. Adam Schiff, the Dalai Lama, and investor Warren Buffett.

      So we have the second weakest president of the last half century, a grifter par excellance, Bill Gates, Commie Pope, Commie Senator, Schiff for Brains, the Dalaia Lama, and an Insurance Salesman who supports the death taxes for his own bottom line.

That list is like the hit parade of people who I despise for what they are doing to this country and the world.
The Dalai Lama is maybe the best choice of those, Gates – meh, so to me this shows they over sampled the leftists.
What this ultimately means is despite their efforts of pushing leftward polling, Trump really came out on top.

“Relatively few Democrats choose Trump and relatively few Republicans pick Obama”

Bet they spent a lot of money to come up with that stunning insight.

I vote for Devin Nunes.

So I’m looking through the top ten lists and notice the name Clare Boothe Luce and it rings a bell – then discover a photo of her with Soong Mei-ling and Chiang Kai-shek which leads to a photo of Luce with General Stilwell and Fred Eldridge.

trumanlibrary.gov/photograph-records/2017-573

Fred Eldridge wrote ‘Wrath in Burma’ a book about Stilwell’s interactions with Mountbatten, Wavell, Chiang, Frank Merrill.

This is a very good book for those looking for an American insider view of events in China/Burma/India

How much money did obama and kerry get as kickbacks from the cash money shipped to Iran on palettes?

Is this piece of garbage obama’s treason apparent yet?

Is that grifter michelle obama’s racism apparent yet?

“Somewhere, Nancy Pelosi is kicking herself for not sticking to her initial—and correct—assessment of the folly of impeaching Trump along partisan lines and without public support.”

I don’t think that Nancy Pelosi ever privately favored impeachment. She was just caught between Scylla and Charybdis. Had she not went forward with the articles of impeachment; it is likely that the squad would have removed her as speaker of the house. Now that Pelosi has went through with impeachment; it is likely that some of those members of the squad are going to blame Pelosi when it fails in the Senate.

Obama is a Constitutional law professor, too. Don’t forget that.
