New Gallup Poll Pits Obama Against Trump and Donald is Going to Lose His S**t
Donald is going to lose it when we sees this Gallop poll
A new Gallup poll released Wednesday should send the Donald into a tizzy. It seems Barack Obama just secured Most Admired Man for 2017, with 17% of the vote — edging out Donald Trump’s 14%. Pope Francis came in 3rd, with 3% of the vote. It’s the 10th consecutive time Obama has held the honor, and only the 2nd time a sitting President has been beaten out by a previous President. Vice President Mike Pence came in last, with 1% of the vote.
If that won’t upset the Donald enough, the most admired woman is Hillary Clinton. Lord only knows that should make his head pop. The second most admired woman was Michelle Obama. Michelle received 7% of the vote to Clinton’s 9%. It marks Clinton’s 16th straight win. Way down the list is First Lady Melania Trump, with 1% of the vote. Other notables on the list include Democratic Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, with 3% of the vote.
Politico notes that Obama;
“won the year he was elected president, each year in the White House and his first year out of office. Only former President Dwight Eisenhower has won Gallup’s most-admired more times than Obama.”
All this could spell more trouble for Trump, fresh after ramming a hugely unpopular tax bill down the throats of Americans. Already at historically low approval ratings for this point in his presidency, his erratic, narcissistic behavior and caustic temperament could cost his party at the polls in the 2018 mid-terms.
