Trump Ends Obama’s Run as America’s ‘Most Admired Man’

Staff Sgt. Marianique Santos / Public domain

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.

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.

Peter Nyikos

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.

You voted for the Rinos McCain and Romney?

Peter Nyikos

Reply to  Albert Hess

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.

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.
