Poll – Obama Beats Out Jesus as America’s Hero


Americans named President Obama as their No. 1 hero, followed by Jesus Christ and Martin Luther King, in a new Harris poll.

Others in the top 10, in descending order, were Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, Abraham Lincoln, John McCain, John F. Kennedy, Chesley Sullenberger and Mother Teresa

People were asked whom they admired enough to call their heroes. Those surveyed were not shown a list of people to choose from. The Harris Poll was conducted online among a sample of 2,634 U.S. adults by Harris Interactive.

This question was first asked in a Harris Poll in 2001. In that survey Jesus Christ was the hero mentioned most often, followed by Martin Luther King, Colin Powell, John F. Kennedy and Mother Teresa.

The biggest changes upwards on this list into the top 10 since 2001, apart from Barack Obama, were:

— George W. Bush was rated only 19th in July 2001, when he had been president for six months, and is now number 5 on the list.

— John McCain, who was not in the top 20 in 2001, is now number 7.

  1. The Handwriting is on the wall. When the country started taking the prayer out of schools, it started going downhill, & now people don’t even want even the mention of the LORD JESUS CHRIST mentioned. This country that were once called a Christian nation, has crossed the point of no return. There still may be a few still out that haven’t heard GOD’S call, but as a nation it will never return to what it once was. Run to JESUS as fast as you can.

  2. You are so right Jim P. I love reading about American History and how God used men to form this great nation. The Message was first preached here but Brother Branham said that America would not have it and his ministry would go to the foreign lands. Look at the great things that are happening in Africa and elsewhere. America is more worried about Hollywood and its filth. Sad.
