    “WASHINGTON, D.C. -- 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.”

      Should this surprise anyone? 50 - 50 split, just like the present great divide. Democrats versus Republicans or Obama versus Trump. No surprise to me.

      Interesting. One would assume that if you admire someone above all others, you aspire to be like that person.

      If my husband admired Donald Trump above all others, I would be Very worried.

      Happy New Year!

    I saw a headline on that but I didn't read the article. I look at that the same way as the sexiest man of the year. Those don't mean jack.

        smile On the surface, perhaps. But, I doubt it would take too much effort to find a point to disagree on.

          Well now, I would say that an impeached president should not be so admired. 

          The fact that he IS so admired shows how weak and pathetic the case the Democrats have made against him.  They've convinced nobody, only shown themselves to be a bunch of political hacks.  It is obvious the American public not only doesn't want President Donald Trump removed from office, they admire him.

          It is also proof that Obama wasn't as admired as those who support him believe.  He was propped up by the fake media and nothing more.

            Funny thing, Mike, maybe that is why this survey is just bunk. I think that Trumps admiration numbers are contrived, so what is the difference? So where is the evidence of this contrary last paragraph in your post?

              We all admire what Obama as president says about us as the country who elected him.

              We respect Trump for infusing life into the economy. Trump's numbers are no more inflated than Obama's but....Trump won our grudging approval. Obama was handed approval on a silver platter and took it for granted by not following through on what many of us thought he'd accomplish.

                L to L, what you say may be true from the prospective of some folks, generally are Trump supporters anyway.

                Of course, your point of view I cannot share.

                  I understand. Trump, as an individual, is hard to stomach but no one can contest how the economy has thrived under his stewardship.

              Obama had many scandals and did many things the media ignored or did not act upon.  The favorable news stories were much higher than negative news stores about him.  Here is an interesting article in The Atlantic about it.  There are several others from other sources.
