Trump ends Obama's 12 year run as "most admired man" (only cuz Dem's split their vote )

Trump wins ONLY BECAUSE Dems split their vote between Obama and Biden

President Donald Trump has come out on top as Americans’ most-admired man for 2020, according to Gallup’s annual survey, ending former President Barack Obama’s 12-year run with the title.

This year’s poll results mark the first time Trump has won most-admired man on his own, after last year tying with Obama for the title. Former first lady Michelle Obama still ranks as the most-admired woman in 2020, earning the title for the third year in a row, with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris in second place.


18 percent of the U.S. adults surveyed named Trump when asked which man “living anywhere in the world they admire most,” while 15 percent named Obama. President-elect Joe Biden was third.


The results of the poll, conducted Dec. 1-17, were heavily split along party lines, with 48 percent of Republicans naming Trump and 32 percent of Democrats opting for Obama as their top choice. Biden was also a popular choice for Democrats, earning 13 percent of their responses.

No other public figure besides Trump received more than 2 percent of Republicans’ votes. Trump and Obama tied on the vote of independents, each earning 11 percent, while Biden earned 3 percent.

2. The other Party...

... is going crazy with pride. They believe this means he really "won" the popular vote. I point out that Obama and Biden followed and they just say Obama is dropping. They do not see that people are naturally moving toward Biden at #3. Another example of how they don't see logic and reality very well.

3. Most notorious, recognized, evil, ...maybe, but Admired? I've lost any respect for Gallup I may

have had. Over the years I always thought they did a good job. With this one, we're either missing something in the polling, or Gallup polled a bunch of nuts!

4. this is actually good news. Exposes the trumpites even further

the man who cheated on his wife with a porn star shortly after the birth of their son and got caught on tape bragging about sexually assaulting women and getting away with it is their most admired. Says a lot about them.

Like we didn't already know.

6. At least it was only 18% who picked Trump

Still way too high but not out of line with his share of warped disciples. For anyone to say, "I admire Donald Trump" is akin to admitting, "I admire racists/misogynists" and "I admire completely self-centered individuals."

Good luck with that.
