President Donald trump and former First Lady Michelle obama were in the foreground when Americans were asked who they admire most in an annual poll released this week by Gallup.

This marks the third year in a row that Ms. Obama, 56, has topped ‘Most Admired Women’ list, as first time Trump has beaten former President Barack obama, who topped the poll as the most admired man for 12 years before.

Trump, 74, and Obama, 59, tied for first place in 2019. This year, however, the current president beat his predecessor, with 18% of those polled naming Trump their “most admired man,” compared to 15% who named Obama.

A sitting US president has topped the annual list 60 times since 1964, when Gallup began asking Americans the open-ended question, “What a man you’ve heard or read, living today in any party?” in the world, do you admire the most? “

The poll results were divided almost evenly along party lines. Some 48% of Republicans named Trump as their top choice for “most admired man,” while 32% of Democratic respondents opted for Obama (13% of Democratic respondents opted for President-elect Joe biden, instead of).

As Gallup notes, Trump has only one 39% job approval rate, but “his dominant performance among Republicans, contrasting with Democrats dividing their picks between multiple public figures, pushes him to the top of the list of most admired men of 2020.”

No public figure other than Trump received more than 2% of Republicans’ votes for “most admired man.”

Other people mentioned by respondents to the ‘Most Admired Man’ survey include an infectious disease expert Dr Anthony Fauci, Pope Francis, and Invoice doors.

Responses for ‘most admired woman’ were equally partisan, the First Lady Melanie Trump leader among Republicans at 8%, followed by Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett, who received 4%.

Seventeen percent of Democratic respondents named Mrs. Obama, while 16% were named vice president-elect Kamala harris and 5% named Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

It was a banner year for the Obamas, as the couple celebrated a pair of blockbuster memoirs and a wave of Netflix projects, before spending time in Hawaii during the holiday season.

A recent Netflix Documentary traced the success of Mrs. Obama’s book in 2018 To become, which continues to appear on bestseller lists just over two years after it was first published.

Mr. Obama’s exit in November, A promised land, would have sold 1.7 million copies in its first week on sale, far surpassing other recent presidential briefs.

Trump, meanwhile, had a different 2020, losing his re-election to Biden and mounting a series of unsuccessful court challenges in an attempt to challenge the results.

His final year as president also saw Trump grappling with his administration’s biggest challenge: the still-ongoing novel. Coronavirus pandemic.

Although he recently signed a COVID-19 Relief Bill after days of unnecessary delays, Trump has largely focused on his electoral defeat rather than the pandemic.

In remarks Tuesday, Biden lambasted the president for what he argued was far too slow a rollout of COVID-19 vaccines.

“The vaccine distribution and administration effort is not progressing as it should,” Biden said. “With only a few days left in December, we’ve only vaccinated a few million so far.”

With just three weeks in office, Trump spent the last days of his presidency playing golf, showing off a slew of controversial pardons, and continuing to tweet about the so-called voter fraud. The Trump family are said to be entertaining a move to Florida after their departure from the White House, while the president reflects on his plans for the future in politics.
