While Republicans continue to disrespect President Barack Obama every chance they get, the results of a recent Gallup poll show he is the most admired man in America. It is the seventh straight year he has received the honor. Making matters worse for the GOP, Hillary Clinton topped the list of most admired women.
“The incumbent president is nearly always the winner of the most admired distinction, having placed first in all but 12 of the 68 years the question has been asked,” Gallup explained in a press release.
However, no other president has faced the unrelenting obstruction and vitriol Obama has been forced to endure throughout his two terms in office, making his run as most admired man even more impressive. According to Gallup he has been on the top 10 list each year since 2006. Other men appearing on the list include Pope Francis and Bill Clinton.
Meanwhile, Clinton overcame false claims that she was responsible for the Benghazi attacks to beat out the likes of Oprah Winfrey and Condoleeza Rice. She has nabbed that distinction for 17 of the last 18 years.
As proof that Republicans were included in the poll, it should be noted that Benjamin Netanyahu, Vladamir Putin and Bill O’Reilly all appeared near the bottom of the list.
