Former President Barack Obama has been knocked from his pedestal once against by rival Donald Trump. President Trump ended Obama’s 12-year run as the most admired man in America according to Gallup’s annual survey. The survey showed that Trump edged out the former president by gaining eighteen percent of the vote compared to Obama’s fifteen percent.

The Hill reports:

The current U.S. president has been named the pollster’s most-admired man in 60 out of 74 years, including all eight years of Obama’s presidency and every year of George W. Bush’s presidency except for 2008. Trump had finished second to Obama in 2017 and 2018.

The 2020 rankings are the 10th time Trump has ranked among the top 10. Before entering the political sphere, he made the list in 1988, 1989, 1990 and 2011. Biden made only his second appearance in the top 10 after making the list in 2018.

Among Republicans, 48 percent of respondents named Trump. No other public figure got more than 2 percent Republican support, according to Gallup. Among independents, both Obama and Trump received 11 percent support. Fauci was the choice of 5 percent of Democrats but 1 percent of Republicans.

The record holder for appearances in the top 10 is the late Rev. Billy Graham, who made the list 61 times before his 2018 death. Former President Carter, who has appeared on the list 29 times, is the most-represented living person.

The top ten on the list included Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Microsoft founder Bill Gates, the Dali Lama, Joe Biden, and Anthony Fauci.

      1. Albert Hess seriously I know what you’re referring to the Popular vote sounds like something from High School IMO ‘Most Admired Man’ beats that title all together!

  1. At last, our great president has been recognized for his continual fight for the American people. Now he should be recognized as the true winner of the 2020 race!

    1. Exactly!!! It must happen, in order to restore a modicum of confidence in our governmental bodies. ANNND, kick McConnell to the curb!

      1. Unfortunately for the coon he ventures onto the highway, trusting humans to look out for him as he tries to get to the other side. However there are people that have no concern for the sanctity of life , and they run over him and kill him. Sounds like Demoncrats to me.

    1. Obama was the instrument for people to heat the Police. He divided people against people. He was a racist He was the worth President. He was the worth thing that happen to our country. That is probably the Kenyan culture.

    2. Obummer was the worst president and the biggest mistake ever. How anyone could admire him boggles my mind. He needs to quit interfering in our government as he is
      nothing but a trouble maker.

          1. It has been published that he came to the USA on a student visa. That means he came from another country, which means he wasn’t qualified to be elected. So that’s his prize winning accomplishment–pulling off the fraud. Smooth…

        1. Albert Hess comes across as a nobody who is hoping that some of his nobodiness will rub off onto people who let their guard down when replying to him. It’s part of being a troll.

    1. Exactly. That’s why the left hates him so much–he cannot be bought off since he has his own money. And because he’s trying to expose their corruption and put an end to it.

      1. Yes, it is; just like the peace prize Obama won for doing nothing at all. When they give out awards without being earned, they cheapen the whole system. This includes the participation trophies they give out in schools.

        1. At least they are rewarded for participation, unlike Obama, who indulged in saber-rattling throughout much of the Muslim world.

          Contrast Trump, with three peace treaties with Muslim countries and Israel, and his support for Israel to the extent of recognizing Jerusalem as its capital.

          Contrast again with Obama, who snubbed Netanyahu on his visit to the USA and wanted Israel to return to its perilous pre-1967 borders. I’ve read that there is a warrant for Obama’s arrest if he sets foot on Egyptian soil, because of his meddling there in its internal affairs.

  2. I am proud to say. I never once voted for the worst president of the United States of America that his name is obamasshole. Terrible worthless, Anti American CORRUPT, lieing,,cheating, disrespectful, disgusting, disgraceful worthless as tits on a boar worthless. AND JUST CAN’T TAKE STUPID OUT OF STUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUPIDITY. HIM AND MICHAEL CAN GO BACK TO THERE HOMETOWN KENYA. YAY PRESIDENT TRUMP BEAT HIS LOUSY 15% .AMERICAN’S KNOW A GREAT WHEN THEY HAVE ONE. PRESIDENT TRUMP IT IS. IN GOD WE TRUST. GOD BLESS AMERICA 🇺🇸. 🇺🇸. IN JESUS NAME AMEN 🙏 YEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      1. Like Dole, McCain and Romney seemed not to really want the Presidency but were quite happy with going down in history as the Republican nominee. Romney got cold feet near the end of the campaign and didn’t realize — or didn’t care — what a winner he had in the Benghazi tragedy.

        As for McCain, he didn’t do his homework on abortion/infanticide, letting Obama get away in the debate with a false claim about his fanatical opposition to an anti-infanticide bill while an Illinois state legislator. And he conceded the election early election evening, even before a majority of electoral votes was confirmed.

        Contrast that with Trump, who didn’t let Hillary Clinton frame the abortion debate but came out with an impassioned statement in the third presidential debate about how he thinks it is “terrible” that Clinton supports abortion up to the moment of birth. That galvanized the pro-life grass roots, most who up until then had been lukewarm (or worse) about Trump. Their support for Trump from that point on probably spared the country four years of a militant leftist Executive Branch of the US Government.

  3. Sort of like President Reagan, they never had anything good to say about him until he died. Does this mean that they now think President Trump is “dead?”
    Since we admire him so much we need to organize behind him and keep him in the office to which We The People elected him. Let’s continue to Make America Great!

        1. In a more serious vein, John Quincy Adams had a glorious career in the House of Representatives after a so-so one term as President. He was its most vigorous sponsor and introducer of anti-slavery bills.

  4. I’m proud to call President Trump my President and the leader of the American people. God bless him, his Family and the USA!
    A well-deserved recognition of his service to our Country.

  5. Poetic Justice there and they try to tell us that Biden won the Election?? We do not believe it for one minute because Trump won and the Election was STOLEN!!!!! This just proves it more!!!

    1. What is so sad WE ALL SAW IT MANY TIMES AND PLACES! Plus all the sworn statements. MY ideas, sorass, gates, and the big money passed out a lot of $$$$ to a lot of people! Times are hard a $$$$ talks! BUT EVERYONE KNOWS TRUMP WON!

  6. As if there is any comparison between these two guys,,one did more than any other president in his history and the other tried to take him down by weaponiszing his minions in the agencies he had loyal butt kissers,,,what a joke


  8. Obama was admired?? By whom?? Certainly NOT this black man writing this post. Obama was one of the worst presidents ever. Gave us high debt, bending us over for our enemies, attacked Christianity relentlessly, snubbed Israel, gave us an UNaffordable health provision than lied saying we can keep our current plans and doctors, birthed BLM, OWS, ANTIFA, fanned the flames of racial tension leading to more black deaths, sympathy for criminals and disrespect of LEOs. Any more “qualities to admire” I missed about Obummer?

      1. Thank you Nine for your encouragement 😎. Yeah I was never crazy about Obama from the get go. Quite a few ppl I know that voted for him are now having regrets

    1. I admire you for your statement. We had a black vet running for Senate in Michigan, John James but thanks to cheating he won’t be representing us.

      1. I was hoping John James would clinch that win. Hopefully he tries again. I see he’s a great man. Btw Trump did endorse James for his election. Just a bit of info you can share with bleeding hearts who still think trump is racist

  9. Trump runs circles around Obama. Trump is only second to Lincoln in Love of Country and her People. Enjoy the Consequences of Government Domination of your life.
    Because of your Ignorance and Stupidly America will join Venezuela. Obama’s Dream!!
    Death of our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Enjoy the Dictatorship of Government’s ownership of your life !!! 🙁

  10. Twice now for no reason other than censoring another’s opinion, my comments below have been deleted. Trump runs circles around Obama. Trump is only second to Lincoln in Love of Country and her People. Enjoy the Consequences of Government Domination of your life.
    Because of your Ignorance and Stupidly America will join Venezuela. Obama’s Dream!!
    Death of our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Enjoy the Dictatorship of Government’s ownership of your life !!! :-(.

    1. If only the Republicans would have helped our President Trump, just think what he could have accomplished!!!!!!!!!

  11. Because of TNN’S Censorship of my simple Comments of my opinion, NO bad language, NO bad words NO yelling Caps I will unsubscribe to this Big Brother Media website.

  12. Someone please tell me what Obama was admired for! What did he actually do to help America and Americans? No one has ever been able to answer that for me! He got the Nobel Peace Prize for what??? Our current President has done more for us than the last 10 Presidents!!!!

  13. Well, Obummer won America’s Ugliest Man, and Old Mrs.Obummer won America’s Ugliest And Dumbest Might Be A Woman. Obummer is truth IS NOT AMERICAN BORN, however, he got away with a well put together Fake Birth Certificate. The GOOD NEWS is that soon both will stand before the Only True and Righteous Judge, Jesus Christ The LORD.
    2 Corinthians 5:10

    “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.”

    King James Version (KJV)

  14. And his IQ is somewhere north of 150+, making him one of the smartest President we have ever had. Plus he has excellent common sense which makes him even smarter, or more accurate in his predictions.

  15. That’s a nice thing to win, but it won’t solve the problem of a Biden presidency. Trump needs the full cooperation of every Republican in Congress to have a chance for the elector challenge plan to work. The failure of our SCOTUS to do their duty requires the use of every feature of the Constitution to be utilized to LEGALLY save the Trump presidency and thereby our Republic.

  16. Looks like Oblammer really wasn’t anything to brag about! He has NEVER doneanything except been a political crook/thief! And 15% would b very close to the percent of negroes in the US!
