It seems the end of Donald Trump's presidency hasn't had any effect on his desirability after a new survey proves he still has a lot of fans...

It appears that President Donald Trump has a lot of admirers...

So much so, he's landed the title of "most admired man in America."

The new survey seems a little odd...

And when you see who he was up against, it's bound to confuse you even more...

Safe to say, President Trump has had a busy 4 years.

Love him or hate him, it's hard to deny he's made an impact.

It's been a strange few years...

No one could quite believe what they were hearing when the notorious business tycoon announced his plans to run for president during the 2016 presidential campaigns.

But, remarkably, it wasn't a publicity stunt.

Donald Trump was being deadly serious about his bid for his place in the White House, and kicked off his campaign with an array of promises, such as building a wall along the border of Mexico, allowing all American's the right to bear arms, and to, of course, "make America great again."

And when it came round to election day...

The world awoke on November 9th to see that America officially had its new leader - President Donald Trump.

It's been an eventful few years...

It's certainly been up and down - Trump has sparked his fair share of outrage, imposing a temporary travel ban on Muslims entering and leaving the U.S. and banning transgender people from the military, just for example. But he also passed a bill that makes animal cruelty a federal crime, and unemployment in the country was at an all-time low at just 3.6 percent.

However, the president is certainly no stranger to criticism and controversy.

Much of his behavior while acting as president has been questioned, with many calling for him to be impeached, and even removed from office entirely.

And, earlier this year...

Many prayers were answered when the president was actually impeached.

However, regardless of his impeachment...

Trump continued to hold an awful lot of power and his support was still going strong.

But, despite his overwhelmingly loyal fan base...

There's no denying that Trump has handled this year's coronavirus pandemic terribly.

Our country is the worst affected in the world by the pandemic...

And despite catching the virus himself, Trump has seemed to remain completely oblivious to how catastrophic the virus has been for millions of people.

The people of America were left grieving and feeling angry...

But of course, this didn't stop Trump from running as president for a second term in this year's 2020 elections.

Trump's presidential campaign was as chaotic as we'd all expected...

And in comparison to Democratic candidate Joe Biden's toned-down campaign, Trump seemed to be desperately grasping at straws.

He was clearly in panic mode...

And right up until November 3rd, when the votes started to get counted, Trump continued to spread lies about Biden and his campaign team in a desperate bid to be reelected.

But these efforts were to little avail.

On November 7th, it was confirmed that Joe Biden had won the election by amassing 284 electoral college seats to Trump's 214.

It was a clear and fair win for Biden and vice president-elect, Kamala Harris...

But Trump has refused to see it this way and, instead, has been accusing Biden and his team of election fraud ever since. According to Trump, the Republicans are the real winners here.

Trump needs to admit defeat in a graceful and respectful way...

Because if he doesn't, his name will continue to be dragged through the mud.

But in spite of this bizarre year, it seems as though he still has some extremely loyal fans...

According to a new survey, eighteen percent of people who took part in the Gallup poll chose Trump as the most admired man of 2020.

Just last year he tied with Obama who was chosen as the most admired man for twelve years in a row.

This year, however, nearly half of Republican respondents voted for Trump.

Obama was the top choice among Democrats, with thirty-two percent voting for him.

Joe Biden came in second at thirteen percent.

Independents were split, with eleven percent choosing Trump and eleven percent naming Obama.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, was chosen by 5 percent of Democrats, 2 percent of Independents, and 1 percent of Republicans.

Biden came in third and Fauci in fourth.

The remaining men in the top 10 were Elon Musk, Bernie Sanders, Pope Francis, Bill Gates, LeBron James, and the Dalai Lama. Eleven percent of the overall respondents named a relative as their most admired man. Twenty-one percent didn’t respond. And nineteen percent chose “other," instead of picking those listed.

Trump finished among the top 10 for the tenth time...

The results were based on a random sample of 1,018 adults living in all fifty states. Clearly, Trump has a much bigger fan base than we thought. Keep scrolling for more on the president...
