If there is one thing that I have learned over the course of the last 2 years, or so, it’s that one can never put much stock into ANY poll, regardless of the topic or issue that is being polled. Now with that said it’s according to a recent Gallup poll, which surveyed 1,049 adults from December 4–11, that for the tenth year in a row ex-president Barry ‘O’ is the man “most admired” by the American people. And what’s funnier still is the fact that it was Hitlery who topped this poll for being the “most admired woman”, a title she has apparently held for the past 15 years.
The Gallup poll, which has been conducted every year since 1946, asked respondents to name their top two picks for most admired man and woman. Barry ‘O’ took the top spot with 17 percent of the vote, while 14 percent of respondents voted for President Donald Trump allowing him to take the runner-up slot. ‘Commie Pope’ Francis followed with three percent of the vote, and Rev. Billy Graham came in fourth with two percent of the vote. Both Trump and Pope Francis have made the list before, although they have yet to take the top slot in the poll.
However, Gallup did make note of the face that Hitlery may not hold onto her title in future years because her polling numbers were at their lowest in 15 years and are unlikely to improve as her political career is “likely over.” Gallup said, “She managed to win this year because she remains arguably more prominent than other contenders.” And added, “However, retaining that stature may be more challenging in coming years with her political career likely over.” Former first lady Moochelle Obummer took the runner-up slot, followed by the Oprah Winfrey.
But let’s face it, polling less than 1100 people to determine who is the most admired person, by over 250,000,000 people, doesn’t exactly yield results that are anything other than highly suspect. Regardless of their methods, the sample size is simply too small to derive anything of statistical significance. That makes any conclusions drawn more than just a little bogus. And it makes you an absolute moron for believing and supporting their concocted conclusions. But in this case, I suppose, it does make for good PR for those who manage the top “most admired” spots.
And regardless of how many people actually participated in this poll, I guess what has me rather curious is how anyone, regardless of their political affiliation, can actually claim to admire a man who has made it so abundantly clear that he possesses nothing but hatred for the country he was elected to lead. His agenda was one that was focused on the systematic dismantling of this country, and, in his own words, to “fundamentally transform” it. And oddly enough, the “most admired woman” was the person who desperately wanted to carry that same agenda forward.
Here’s an idea, how about someone conducting a poll to see how many Americans it is that think Obummer is little more than a fraud and a traitor, besides being the worst president in all of American history. But then I suppose that would likely be considered racist. After all, to say anything that is not a ringing endorsement of this man, or his presidency, is nothing less than an act of political heresy. There is nothing about this man that can in any way been seen as admirable. He’s nothing more than a con man, and a political deviant of the worst kind.
But let’s just say, for the sake of argument, that Barry ‘O’ and Hitlery actually are the two people most admired by the American people. What exactly does that say about the state of our country or of the people who inhabit it? I find it more than a little disturbing that there are those who are able to admire people who are two of the most dishonest and corrupt individuals that you could find anywhere on the entire planet. And what might it be that allows them to do so? Is it gullibility? Or, is it simply out of ignorance? Whatever the case, it’s truly frightening.
