Americans Love Their Bill Clinton

Despite sexual scandal, impeachment and a series of gaffes that embarrassed him and the White House, Bill Clinton is the most admired President over the last 25 years, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg Survey.

Forty-two percent of respondents picked Clinton – whose wife Hillary Rodham Clinton stood by his side and who could very well run for the White House in 2016 – as their favorite President going back to the 1992 elections he won.

Clinton retained the support of feminists especially through the scandal in which he was engaged with oral sex in the Oval Office with a young intern, Monica Lewsinky, who dismissed it because they liked his policies otherwise favoring women, although he’d also been accused of being a rampant womanizer.

He was followed by current President Barack Obama at 18 percent, George W. Bush at 17 percent and his father, George H.W. Bush, at 16 percent. The NBC/WSJ/Annenberg Survey was conducted June 2-8 of 1,031 registered voters.
