President Trump and Former President Obama Are America’s Most Admired Men

the Gallup Annual Survey conducted since 1984 asks Americans this open question: Which man and woman that you have heard or read, living today in any part of the world, do you admire the most?

And Donald Trump and Barack Obama are tied for first place in men this year, garnering 18% of the vote for American adults. This shocked Trump, who has never claimed first place, while Obama has been first 12 times. Former first lady Michelle Obama was named the most admired woman with 10% of the vote, while current first lady Melania Trump came in second with 5%.

These votes were widely split across parties, with 41% of Democrats choosing Barack Obama and 45% of Republicans choosing Donald Trump; meanwhile, only 3% of GOP respondents named Obama and only 2% of Democrats named Trump. The independents were evenly distributed: 12% for Obama and 10% for Trump.

The same was seen among women, with Michelle Obama winning 23% of the Democratic vote, while Melania Trump was the best vote winner among Republicans with 11%.

The Gallup Report notes that the outgoing president has generally been named America’s most admired man, winning the title in 58 of the previous 72 Gallup polls. The exceptions are when the sitting president is politically unpopular, as was the case with Trump in 2017 (when he had a 36% approval rating) and 2018 (when his approval rating was 40%).

Yet despite becoming the third president in U.S. history to be impeached after a historic House vote earlier this month, Trump is more popular now than he was in the past. over the past two years. His 45% job approval is among his best as president. It paved the way for him tied with Obama as the most admired, although it wasn’t enough to end the latter’s 12-place streak.

Michelle Obama has been named the most admired woman in the past two years, while Hillary Clinton, the former presidential candidate, secretary of state, senator and first lady, has finished 22 first times in 25 years previous ones.
