Ex-Fox News star Tucker Carlson has been named as the most trusted source of news and information in America, a new poll has found.
Carlson topped the list in a new survey from the reputable polling organization Gallup.
Gallup asked the members of the public who their favorite public figure is when it comes to trustworthy information.
While Carlson topped the list, former President Barack Obama was at the bottom.
Carlson’s ranking in the new poll will likely be a wakeup call for his former Fox News boss Rupert Murdoch.
Obama, meanwhile, finished in last place which will be bad news for the Democrats heading into the critical 2024 election.
During the coming election cycle, Democrats will be relying on Obama to make the case to the voters for President Joe Biden.
