The Most Admired Man in the World

As if it comes as a surprise to most Americans, Obama is no longer the most admired man. And if these “honors” were real, Obama hasn’t been the most admired man for some time.

Further, if we’re being really honest Obama never should have made the list. But we know how low the bar is when you give the man a Nobel Peace Prize while he wages three wars.

Regardless, Obama no longer tops the list of Most Admired Men. Hard to believe that in a world where Black Lives Matter, a white guy knocked the Black guy out of the saddle. and that just happened.

Trump knocked the feckless “Boy Blunder” off his pedestal, garnering 18 percent to Obama’s 15 percent of the votes.

The Hill reports:

The current U.S. president has been named the pollster’s most-admired man in 60 out of 74 years, including all eight years of Obama’s presidency and every year of George W. Bush’s presidency except for 2008. Trump had finished second to Obama in 2017 and 2018.

The 2020 rankings are the 10th time Trump has ranked among the top 10. Before entering the political sphere, he made the list in 1988, 1989, 1990 and 2011. Biden made only his second appearance in the top 10 after making the list in 2018.

For comparison’s sake, how many times did Obama receive this distinction prior to his “residency”? The answer is equivalent to the Biden family’s cumulative IQ: Zero.

The article continues,

Among Republicans, 48 percent of respondents named Trump. No other public figure got more than 2 percent Republican support, according to Gallup. Among independents, both Obama and Trump received 11 percent support. Fauci was the choice of 5 percent of Democrats but 1 percent of Republicans.

Anybody curious how much Democrat support Obama got this time around? I don’t have an answer. But because it wasn’t reported, the answer can’t be good.

And what about 81 million-vote-stealing Joe Biden? How many dead Democrats voted for him as the most admired man?

According to the article, the record holder for appearances in the top 10 is the late Rev. Billy Graham. He made the list 61 times before his 2018 death. Well-deserved, I’d say.

But then there is former President Carter, who has appeared on the list 29 times. Sadly, Carter is the most-represented living person, which proves that this ranking is mostly fluff.

Perhaps the selection of Trump provides some level of credibility. His win offsets the notion that both Biden and Fauci made the Top 10.
