A Gallup survey has identified Barack Obama as the 'Most Admired Man' in the world for 11 straight
in Politics

A Gallup survey has identified Barack Obama as the 'Most Admired Man' in the world for 11 straight years.
True
About this rating ince 1946, the Gallup analytics company has conducted surveys to identify the “Most Admired Man” and “Most Admired Woman” in the world (although in 1946 and 1947 only a single “Most Admired Person” was named). With only a handful of exceptions across those several decades, the most admired man has typically been the current president of the United States.

It should be no surprise, then, to see that President Barack Obama held the “Most Admired Man” designation for all eight years he occupied the White House, from 2009 through 2016. It may come as something of a surprise, however, to learn that Obama has actually maintained that status for 11 straight years, beginning the year before he assumed office (2008) and continuing for the two years since he has been out of office (2017-18).

The current president, Donald Trump, has polled reasonably close to Obama in the admiration stakes over the last few years, according to Gallup, but still in a distinctly second-place position:

Only a few times, all in tumultuous political circumstances, has the incumbent president not been tabbed as Gallup’s “Most Admired Mahttps://www.snopes.com/fact-check/barack-obama-most-admired/

    I admire individuals who are for the public as a whole.

    Did Barack Obama, represent the public, as a whole, or did he represent his individual followers, constituents, or fanbase specifically instead?

    Really? Out of the 7+ billion people on Earth, Donald Trump and Barack Obama are the two most worthy of admiration? I think we assign too much value to politicians, and too little value to everyone else.

    I admire someone like Terrence Tao 100 times as much as I do either of these. But Terrence Tao is not in the spotlight 24/7, so nobody knows who he is.
  • I admire Abby Johnson more than either of those two this is a B.S. survey

    I don’t place much value on these polls and would not see them as being in anyway useful in giving a balanced view .Obama seemed like a nice guy but in my opinion possibly the worst American President ever so what’s the poll based on why the admiration?


    Incidentally Hitler was time magazine man of the year in 1939 , Stalin  received that accolade twice in 1940 and 1943 humans seem to admire the wrong type of people all the time
