Donald Trump Ties with Pope Francis in Gallup Poll for Second Most-Admired Man in the World



File this one under the you have got to be joking category. In a Gallup survey released Monday of the most admired men in America, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump earning the same share of votes of admiration as did Pope Francis. HUH? Making this poll even worse and a sign of the times that we have truly reached a new low in the United States, Barack Obama was the overwhelming #1 and socialist Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sander was #4. Are you kidding me? And if that poll was not bad enough, Hillary Clinton was named most admired woman.

If we think that a president who has fundamentally transformed America for the worse and has shredded the US Constitution, an attention seeking billionaire and a self described socialist are 3 of the top 4 most admired men in America, we are doomed as a country. How could anyone put politicians at the top of their admired list?

Americans named Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama as their most admired woman and man in the world in 2015, with Donald Trump earning the same share of admiration as Pope Francis, according to the results of the latest Gallup survey released Monday.

On the list of most admired women, the Democratic presidential front-runner earned 13 percent and was at the top of the annual poll for a record 20th time, seven more times than former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt. Obama earned 17 percent on the men’s side, his eighth time atop the list, tying for second most with former presidents Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan. Former President Dwight D. Eisenhower was named the most admired man 12 times.

Coming in second to Clinton on the list of women: 2014 Nobel Peace Prize recipient Malala Yousafzai with 5 percent, followed by Oprah Winfrey and first lady Michelle Obama tied with 4 percent. Below them is a range of political figures from around the world, from Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina to German Chancellor Angela Merkel to Myanmar politician Aung San Suu Kyi, all with 2 percent or fewer.

On the list of most admired men, Pope Francis and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump tied for second place with 5 percent each. Meanwhile, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders earned 3 percent, with Bill Gates at 2 percent. A mix of religious and political figures, including the Dalai Lama and George W. Bush, rounded out the top 10, with 1 percent each. For Trump, this is his fifth finish in the top 10, the other instances coming in 1988, 1989, 1990 and 2011.

      [...] of course, Barack Obama is the most admired man in America for 2015. Which is the reason why this may be the most ignorant and useless poll [...]

      Those people who voted for Barack Obama have destroyed our country. This man is a Muslim and he is hell bent on “Fundamentally transforming America” into part of the ISIS Caliphate. I hope those idiots who voted for him are happy with their work.
