President Donald Trump described former President Barack Obama as the most admired man in the United States.

President Donald Trump said former President Barack Obama was the most admired man in the United States, according to Gallup’s annual survey.

This is Trump’s first year in the top of the world, while it is the 12th consecutive year for Obama. The results were based on random telephone surveys of 1,025 US adults conducted from December 2 to 15, and showed a sampling error of ± 4 percentage points at a confidence level of 95%.

The survey found that the selection is based on political preferences. 41% of the Democrats voted for Obama, 45% of the Republicans voted for Trump. The independents were quite divided.

According to Gallup, “Obama’s 18% adult rating in the United States as the most admired man matches his 2018 (19%) and 2017 (17%) numbers, all of which are high for a former president. Dwight Eisenhower is the only former president to have received double-digit mentions at any point in time after he left office. ”

Trump’s 18% was an increase over the previous two years when he was named the most admired man by 13% of respondents in 2018 and 14% by 2017. Much of the increase came from Republicans – the 45% figure is a 13% increase from 2018 and a 10% increase from 2017.
