Every December, Zillow asks Americans which celebrities they would most like to have as their neighbor, and which ones they’d hate to have next door. Taylor Swift has been named the number one celebrity respondents of the ninth annual Zillow Celebrity Neighbor Survey would be happy to call neighbor in 2016, and 2016 Republican Presidential candidate, Donald Trump, makes the top of who they would have hated to live beside in 2015.
Swift was the top choice for a neighbor in 2016, earning 12 percent of votes. The pop star was especially favored among millennials, receiving 17 percent of their votes, according to Zillow.
“2015 was a landmark year for Taylor Swift, from her highly successful 1989 World Tour, to being named the youngest female ever on Forbes’ 100 Most Powerful Women list, so it’s no surprise America picked the down-to-earth singer-songwriter as 2016’s most desirable neighbor,” says Jeremy Wacksman, Zillow chief marketing officer.
Blockbuster star Jennifer Lawrence and comedian Amy Schumer rounded out the top three positions, earning 11 percent and nine percent of the votes, respectively. All three women were equally as popular among male and female voters.
Outspoken Republican candidate Donald Trump tops this year’s list for worst neighbor, moving up three positions from his fourth-place finish in 2014. One in four voters (24 percent) say Trump is the worst neighbor of 2015 — nearly five times more than last year (five percent of votes). Trump was especially disliked by females (27 percent) and millennials (33 percent) polled.
Kim Kardashian and Kayne West came in second with 22 percent of the votes, narrowly defeating last year’s worst neighbor, Justin Bieber, who ranked third this year. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton finished fourth with 11 percent of the votes. Miley Cyrus came in fifth place with ten percent of the votes with Swift following at sixth with two percent of the votes.
