Obama just beat out Trump in top poll of world’s most admired people

Donald Trump loves ratings; that’s certainly no secret. Donald Trump hates Barack Obama; also not breaking news. So, it stands to reason the only thing Trump hates more than Obama is when the 44th president outranks him in numbers – and unfortunately for Don the Con, that just happened.


YouGov.com just released the results of a poll which plopped Trump’s squishy self as the number two most admired man in the US behind his arch nemesis, Barack Hussein Obama. Even more embarrassing, Obama received 24 points on the poll to Trump’s abysmal 10.

Joining Mr. Obama on the top of the list of influential women in the US? Why, none other than the former First Lady herself, Michelle Obama. Hillary Clinton is a few places behind at number four, leaving poor Melania in the dust in the number 9 spot, which she shares with Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

The Trumps did even worse globally. 

Both Barack and Michelle Obama share the number 2 spot in their respective columns, while Trump landed way back in the 17th spot behind the Pope, David Beckham, Michael Jordan and the pièce de résistance: Vladimir Putin, who beat Trump by 11 spots and 2 total points.

Interestingly, when both Trump and Obama are compared by each country polled, Obama comes before him (though not always necessarily first overall) in every country except Russia, where Trump took the 11th spot and Obama took the 12th.

Melania did not make the global list (though both Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren did).

YouGov first solicited nominations from panelists in 35 countries, then polled the residents of those countries on who they most admired. The panelists were then asked two questions: one where they could choose multiple people they admired, and another where they could only select one person they most admired.

The fact that Trump made the global list at all is certainly unsettling, but the image of his orange face turning a deeper shade of orange while he angrily stamps around the Oval Office is a satisfying image in these trying times.
