A new poll, conducted by NBC/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg Public Policy Center, has determined which President Americans admire the most out of the last 25 years. No, it’s not Bush. No, not “other Bush,” either.
Bill Clinton, whose wife may well be our next President, took the top spot with a whopping 42% of respondents choosing him as the most-admired President in the last quarter-century.
The other three Presidents of the past decade polled about the same. President Obama came in second, with 18% of respondents saying they admired him the most. War criminal George W. Bush came in a close third, with 17% of the vote, and his father took 16% of the vote.
Ronald Reagan, whose last day in office was January 20, 1989, was not included in the poll because his Presidency ended just a few weeks into the 25-year limit–though many right-wing votes may have “trickled down” to him, had he been included.
The poll of 1,238 adults was conducted June 2-8. The margin of error is +/- 2.8 percentage points.
Conservatives, predictably, are outraged.
