Poll: What One Word Best Describes Barack Obama?

In vogue with all great politicians, Barack Hussein Obama II has been called many things. These include: Communicator-in-Chief, the semi-retired president, and even bro. But what does the average American think of when they try to conjure up just one word to describe the 44th president?


The Pew Research Center surveyed 1,504 adults across the United States to answer that very question. Here's what they found [note: numbers indicate respondents, not percentages]:

Despite everything that has happened in the last six years, Americans still believe Obama has "good" intentions or is an overall "good man." At the same time, for as much as he is "trying/tried/tries," he is also entirely "incompetent." So, perhaps while Obama is (with the best of intentions) trying to get everyone, say...healthcare, he is incompetent to successfully carry out the act. 

The survey results were not wholly unexpected. The top responses in previous surveys were "intelligent" in 2009, and "good" in 2013. However, two new words did enter the picture this year that had never turned up in the previous nine surveys. These were "dictator" and "impressive."
