Poll: Top News Story of 2017 Is…

By WND. An unscientific poll being conducted Wednesday shows that Americans view Trump’s first year accomplishments in the Oval Office with top story of 2017.

To the question, “What was top story of 2017,” nearly 51 percent said “Trump First Year.”

Midway through the day, there had been about 164,000 votes for that story, while a far distant second-place story was the economic boom, with some 52,000 votes, or about 16 percent.

In third was the series of sexual misconduct cases with 11 percent, the Las Vegas massacre followed with 7 percent and North Korea was fifth with 5 percent.

Russia, and the so-far unsubstantiated Democrat claims that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election to defeat Hillary Clinton, followed at 4 percent. (Read more from “Poll: Top News Story of 2017 Is…” HERE)


Obama Edges out Trump as Most-Admired Man

By Politico. President Donald Trump is the second-most admired man in the world among Americans, joining a small group of incumbent presidents who failed to win Gallup’s top distinction while in office.

Trump’s predecessor, former President Barack Obama, and vanquished general election opponent, Hillary Clinton, retain their titles as the man and woman Americans most admire, according to the Gallup poll released Wednesday morning.

Obama edged out Trump, 17 percent to 14 percent, to win his 10th most-admired title. He 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 title more times than Obama has. (Eisenhower was so named 12 times).

Clinton narrowly bested former first lady Michelle Obama, 9 percent to 7 percent, retaining her honor for the 16th consecutive year. The former senator, secretary of state and Democratic presidential nominee has won 22 times overall, the most ever. (Read more from “Obama Edges out Trump as Most-Admired Man” HERE)
