Ten times more people want to have dinner with Obama rather than Trump

June 14th, 2018


Do you have a secret dream about having dinner with a celebrity, a world leader or perhaps the queen of England? And who would you choose to have dinner with if you could pick only one? We have asked our panel members just that.

When asked the question: “Who would you rather have dinner with?” we gave our panel members in Ireland and the Nordics quite a few options ranging from presidents such as Barack Obama and Donald Trump to deceased singers such as Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson.

With no exceptions in any countries, Barack Obama is the panel members’ first choice. 38 percent of the Danish panel members have thus chosen Obama and in the remaining countries it goes for between 25 and 35 percent. The second most chosen person is the world-famous talk show host Oprah Winfrey. 13 percent in Ireland would want to have dinner with her if they could choose any of the people listed and between 7 and 11 percent in the remaining countries would like the same thing.

Elvis Presley takes on the third place, followed by Martin Luther King and Queen Elizabeth II. Very few people are interested in having dinner with the current president of the United States and Donald Trump is to be found at the very bottom of the list as a few percentages in each country would rather have dinner with Vladimir Putin than Donald Trump.
