    Trump ends Obama’s reign as most admired man in America, poll finds

    "Former President Barack Obama is no longer the most admired man in the United States, according to an annual poll.

    Obama — who held the title for 12 years in the Gallup poll — now sits behind President Donald Trump as the most admired man.

    Eighteen percent of the 1,018 respondents gave the title to Trump, while Obama was most admired by 15%."

      Go figure... It seems these days nothing adds up. I was shocked to see President Trump lose the election. And now it would apear he is the most admired man in the world.

      " When the sitting president is not the top choice, it is usually because he is unpopular politically. That was the case in 2017 and 2018 when Trump had 36% and 40% approval ratings, respectively, and finished second to Obama as most admired man.

      Even though Trump is similarly unpopular now -- 39% approve of his performance -- his dominant performance among Republicans, contrasted with Democrats splitting their choices among multiple public figures, pushes him to the top of the 2020 most admired man list."

        Sharlee, let's clarify one point...he lost a FRAUDULENT election and THAT is the only reason he lost.

          Yes, it is clear the election was fraudulent due to a variety of fraudulent actions. I was just being a bit sarcastic with my statement ---  Go figure... It seems these days nothing adds up. I was shocked to see President Trump lose the election.

            I hope the Democrats realize this fraud isn't going away.  They've cheated many times in many elections and gotten away with it.  I worked on two elections where our candidate won...until ballots were "discovered" that changed the election.  Election officials and judges saw nothing "irregular."  I once yelled that so now conveniently finding ballots that give your person the election is regular?  Is that the type of elections we have?  The Democrat election cheating machine has gone too far this time.  This is NOT going away.  Things have to change.

              I agree this kind of cheating has gone on for many years, and yes unfortunately it is the kind of election we have. I agree things need to change. However, on this subject, I am a pessimist. I don't believe American's have the resolve to demand change. Many just don't care, some it suits their agenda.

              And your proof is where? You have plenty of unfounded claims, but no proof. In Michigan, the proof was a Post-It note. Thrown out in court. All you have is wild conspiracies on the internet and on right-wing TV. All the courts and Republican judges have thrown this out as ridiculous and unfounded.

              I guess if some random person accuses you of being a child molester, I should believe them just because they yell loud enough? I should believe them even if they go to court and the court throws their case out because it's groundless? But I should still believe it? Don't we look at the evidence?

              I sincerely hope groundless accusations don't come for you some day.

              And btw, if there was massive fraud, why didn't the Democrats take the Senate? Your massive lie doesn't even make any sense. If there was massive fraud, the Dems would have taken both the Senate and expanded their majority in the House.

    Well, as it was stated, the Democrats had such primal hatred against the man.   The Democrats will get the America they want which will be a cesspool, sorry to say.  America will be MUCH MUCH WORSE under Biden.

      Oh, yeah, you nailed it. We sit around dreaming of a cesspool for America.

      As for Trump being most admired by a whopping 18%.....sounds like his cult is smaller than I thought.

    To my mind and the findings look a little bizarre.If Trump was the most admired man then how come he lost the election by millions of votes.? It is possible the sample is too small in a country of 330 million

      I would have to say this past election was fraudulent and that explains a lot.

    I would think that's right. He should be admired! I think he's the only politician that has lost the same election so many times and keep asking for more. That's persistence! He does love to lose.

    Ayan Rand spoke words of wisdom.

      Ayn Rand was a terrible person, cruel and narcissistic, which is reflected in her so-called "philosophy."

        From what I have checked out, what you say about Ayn Rand is true. She was an extremist relative to her philosophy, and her Theory of Objectivism is a cruel version of Darwinism or of Locke's extremes of being in a State of War'a  but . . .

        I think there is a lot of truth in her "philosophy." I also think that if you and I argued many of the foundational aspects of her philosophy that you would agree with most of them. Or at least that is my perception from our years of exchanges.

        However, like most philosophies, when they are considered, (or adhered to), in the extreme, they lose both their attraction and legitimacy.

        For instance; in Atlas Shrugged her moochers vs. producers thoughts are exhibited in extremes; people starving because trains weren't moving farm production, vs. the wheeler-dealers and connected favor peddlers getting rich because the trains were forced to carry their pineapple crops.

        Back that off the extreme track and compare it to an example of a politician getting a free Cadilac health insurance program, or special vaccination treatment, vs. ordinary folks getting health insurance that is worthless to them in any but catastrophic situations, or ordinary people waiting months for their vaccination turn while healthy—non-crucial politicians and wealthy connected folks get theirs first.

        I strongly support Ayn Rand's message, but I don't support her philosophy as voiced and promoted by the likes of The Ayn Rand Institute or her Society of Objectivism. Just because the extremes, (as Ayn Rand did promote), are wrong doesn't mean the basic message is wrong.

        The fact that Ayn Rand was an extremist doesn't mean there isn't truth in her message.

        As a note, for full disclosure, as they say, I have read Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead a couple of times each—and enjoyed them immensely because I agree with their messages.

          I could write a fairy tale about the evils of free market capitalism devoid of any checks on its baser elements and it would also have significant bits of truth.

          I read Atlas Shrugged when I was fourteen and for quite a few years I proclaimed it as my favorite book. I decided to read it again--I think it was the summer between my junior and senior years of college --I made it through about 200 pages and couldn't stomach anymore. I guess that liberal education ruined by ability to swallow the ugly swill she was peddling. ;-)

            Its not the Free Marketplace/Capitalism that has failed society.

            It is our government and central banking system that caused the collapse that we are living in the midst of... This reality was secured for us and for the whole world (because the world chose the Dollar as its Reserve currency), when America chose to get off the Gold Standard and create a debt based fiat currency that has no real value.

            We will soon be switching to a Digital Currency that will be controlled by the Treasury, this will make Banks all but worthless entities as they are bypassed by the Government.

            This will "save" the system as we know it, but it will ultimately lead to a Socialist totalitarianism, this is where the Social Credit system comes in to play much like we see it being used in China today.

            This is all fast approaching, I expect that the majority of it will come into being during the next 2 - 4 years.  During the Biden administration.

            Banks will be bypassed, governments will supply money to the people directly into their Digital Wallets, they have already run their trial with these stimulus checks, their next step is to bypass Bank accounts and transition to Digital Wallets and Digital Currency direct from the government.

            This always stuns me.  You hate free market capitalism...and yet you enjoy all the fruits it provides.  So, why not try living in a country with a controlled economy?  In China every opportunity you get is based on a "citizenship" score.  This determines the job you have, where you can live and more.  If you express any discontent with the Chinese government, your citizenship score will drop and your opportunities will be limited.  How about Russia?  If you want to open a business there...you not only have to pay off officials, but make regular monthly payments to police and officials.  They also get the best of what you have or else, someone will be permitted to have the business you created.  I could introduce you to people who lived in the Ukraine when it was controlled by Russia.  Here....read about someone who is a new congressperson that was born in Russian controlled Ukraine.  She is a BIG deal in the Ukraine part of NYC. I have relatives who talk about her.   https://www.westernjournal.com/new-gop- … ing-squad/

              Don't be so stunned. I am an advocate of well-regulated capitalism. That is hardly extreme or radical, unlike Rand's philosophy, which is barbaric.

                It seems that "well regulated" term is the sticking point.  China is "well regulated" as Mike points out, but unacceptable.  US businesses have been "regulated" to the point that it is close to impossible to create a new, small business...but is nowhere near that "well regulated" point according to you.

                Are you sure that you simply don't like the hoarding of wealth that comes with success?  Is that the real problem as you see it?  That some people become massively wealthy while others remain "poor", at least as long as we keep raising the bar?

                  I have spent much of my life working with small businesses and regulations are rarely their biggest challenge. This is a myth perpetuated by the super wealthy to keep their power. Regulations mostly apply to very large businesses and corporations, and for very good reason. With great wealth comes great power and, unfortunately, history has shown that many of the powerful will cheat, steal, and abuse their workers if left to their own devics.

                  Mom and pop businesses almost never fail because of over regulation. Ratger, it is lack of knowledge about cash flow, marketing, poor business planning in general.

                    I would suggest it depends on the industry of the small business.

                    Most small businesses are hurt by minimum wage regulations, health care requirements, oceans of tax requirements.  Trucking companies, food processing operations, even medical practices and more are all severely impacted by government regulations.  So, yeah, many small businesses are impacted by government regulations.

      I know nothing about Ayan Rand. However, this sentiment is apropos of the times we find ourselves in today.

    I'm surprised but I would attribute that to the concerted effort to lie, bully and smear the name of Trump and anyone related. I guess I can admire his attempt to maintain his resolve through 4 years of unrelenting lies and innuendo by the left although I can't imagine a scenario where he'd be the person I most admire.
