Poll: Obama and Trump Are the 'Most Admired Men' of 2019

  • Executive

By: Nate James

In Brief:

Barack Obama and Donald Trump topped people’s lists of the most admired men of 2019.

The Background:

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.

Why It Matters:

This poll contrasts strongly with the narrative spread by the mainstream media that Trump is loathed by most Americans.
