From CBS News today, President Obama edges out president-elect Trump in “most admired man” poll:
President Obama is the most admired man in America, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday.
President-elect Donald Trump came in second in the poll, which Gallup has conducted every year since 1946. Fifteen percent of respondents selected him as the most admired man, versus 22 percent for Mr. Obama.
The poll was released as Mr. Obama and Mr. Trump engage in a spirited war-of-words. Mr. Obama recently said that he would have beaten Mr. Trump had he been allowed to run a third time, an argument Mr. Trump disputes.
The sitting president typically wins the poll each year. The only presidents-elect to win the poll were Dwight Eisenhower in 1952 and Mr. Obama in 2008.
