The Most Popular Political Figures In The U.S. Are . . .
The YouGov Poll has been questioning nearly 5,000 respondents since November of 2017 through the current date on what they think of 336 well-known people around the world. It turns out that the most popular are Bill Gates (62%), Queen Elizabeth II (61%), and Barack Obama (59%).
I thought it would be interesting just to look at the most popular political figures in the United States, so I went through the list and pulled out only American political figures. The result is shown in the chart above. Note that 5 of the 8 most popular are Democrats, and 1 is an Independent. The only Republicans in the top eight are Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice.
The charts below show the list when it is broken down by gender and generation.
