    According to the Annual Gallup Poll for 2007, President Bush and Hillary Clinton are the Most Admired Man and Woman in the United States respectively. This marks the 6th straight year that these two have won this award.

    It's rather hard to believe with all the anti-Bush rhetoric that he would still be named the Most Admired Man for a 6th straight year but I suppose a number of Americans still look up to him for their own reasons. Hillary I can understand among the female population.

    You can find this article on CNN, Newsweek or Gallup to see for yourselves. I just chose CNN at random.

    They both surprised me. I don't know who I expected would have received the "Man" award (Not President Bush), but I thought there were enough people opposed to Senator Clinton that Oprah would have won for "Woman."

    Yeah, but Oprah is a threat to anyone. Hell, the O could have won Man AND Woman of the Year.

    It just goes to show that the Media makes Bush to be a worse off person than he really is.

    I agree in part, the amount of bias being thrown around in today's media (through whatever medium) is really insane but this does show that Americans can still think on their own. Fact of the matter is that most of what you see and hear is anti-Bush and it seems they've voted against the tide.

    Still, I think it's surprising.

    Only in America will you find a collective populace who favor both a right-wing President and a left-wing, liberal, former First Lady for six consecutive years.:whatever:

    The most admire man in America? Mos Def. The Most admired woman? Lauryn Hill.

    Heh, ONLY in America baby.

    Looking at some of the comments on other sites people seem to be wondering if this means that men more conservative and women more liberal, but I'd say that's too much of a leap. Especially without some other types of surveys aimed at that.

    I'm surprised by the results on both sides.

    While I do agree that there's definitely some bias present in the media's opinion of him, I still assumed there were enough people who legitimately disapproved of Bush regardless of the media's opinion.

    And Hilary always seemed like a figure everyone was divided on. I thought someone like Oprah or heck, even Jolie would've made Most Admired Woman.

    Polls like this one (and pretty much any poll you read about in the news from approval ratings to voter support) are almost always conducted with a sample size of between 1,000 and 2,000 people. Whenever you see a "margin of error" with a poll, it means that they are confident their sampling is accurate to within a few percentage points of the whole population, mainly because they use statistical sampling techniques to get a sample that is reflective of the population the sample is supposed to represent.

    Here's a link with further explanation:

    Bush is disliked for his ACTIONS and his demeanor. He did it all by himself, no help from the press required. My bullsh1t detectors are also sounding the alarm.

    Poeople get angry at Bush, for the same fundamental reason the public rallies against any leader. The citizens constantly cry, "We want change!"...but when someone shows up who honestly wants to change America for the better, he becomes the enemy...because he's not doing things that everyone agrees with. He uses his own judgment as leader, to the best of his ability. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't...but he's still the President. Folks treated tons of other Presidents the same way: Washington, Lincoln, Roosevelt (both of them), Truman, Kennedy, Nixon, Reagan...tons of them. And, in the end, it all boils down to one ormore groups being offended or insulted by the man their country willingly elected.
