President Donald Trump has spent much of his four years in office reversing the damage that Barack Obama caused over eight years, creating a better country and a more successful presidency—and he just stole Obama’s thunder in a new field.
Donald Trump is the most admired man in America, according to a brand new poll…and the results raise embarrassing questions for Joe Biden, too.
Obama, the media’s favorite president, has won the coveted title ever year for the last 12 years.

Trump tied Obama in 2019, even though the media’s coverage of the president has been more than 90% negative and ignored almost all his accomplishments since taking office.
Donald Trump came in first with Americans at 18 percent, followed by Obama at 15 percent.
Joe Biden came in well behind both of them at a measly six percent—barely ahead of Dr. Anthony Fauci. A handful of votes went to other leaders like Elon Musk, Pope Francis, and Microsoft founder Bill Gates.
The fact that President Trump came in ahead of his predecessor despite 100 percent opposition from academia, politicians, and the media is a humiliating blow for Obama, whose entire life has been applauded and celebrated by the liberal establishment.
The poll results came as such a shock that the Gallup organization tried to soothe Obama’s fragile ego by explaining it away: Democrats, the pollsters said, split their votes.
No one besides Trump won more than two percent of Republican support. But 32 percent of Democrats threw their support behind Obama…and just 13 percent said they looked up to Biden.

If nothing else, that proves Trump’s massive popularity with the GOP. Gallup found Trump is admired by 89 percent of Republicans, just down from his all-time high of 95 percent a few weeks before the election.
Trump’s “dominant performance among Republicans, contrasted with Democrats splitting their choices among multiple public figures,” Gallup tried to spin voters’ embrace of the man whose entire presidency has confused pollsters.
The repudiation in that poll has to sting Obama and Biden, but Obama should be used to it. Americans have been rejecting his beliefs for years.
The Democratic Party lost more seats nationally under Obama than any president since World War II. And then the core of Obama’s coalition—black voters—handed him a “personal insult.”
“My name may not be on the ballot, but our progress is on the ballot,” then-President Obama told the 2016 Congressional Black Caucus dinner.

“I will consider it a personal insult, an insult to my legacy” if Trump wins the 2016 presidential election, Obama said. “You want to give me a good send off? Go vote!”
African-Americans did—and a surprising number of them voted Republican.
Not only did Trump defeat Obama’s handpicked candidate for the presidency, but in 2020 Trump won the highest percentage of non-white voters since 1960.
But even in 2016, Trump didn’t win Gallup’s most admired American poll, as he did this election year. That raises pretty serious questions in the president’s mind—questions that he raised last night at a rally for Republican U.S. Senate candidates David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler in Dalton, Georgia.
President Trump said the poll may be the latest piece of evidence that the 2020 presidential election wasn’t on the level.
“I don’t say this braggingly,” he said, referring to the poll. “I came in first, Obama came in second, and Biden came in way low.”

“People have said, ‘How is it possible that a guy who got 80 million votes can’t get any votes for the most admired man?’ You know why?” he asked. “Because he didn’t come in first, that’s why.”
The crowd roared its approval—just as all Americans did in the Gallup poll.
