The annual “Most Trusted People in America” survey, released Tuesday and featured in the magazine's June issue, had movie and TV stars fairing far better in the trustworthiness test than political figures.

While Trebek came in at number eight on the list, DeGeneres slid in the 18th slot, and Ray took the 31st ranking, the president placed at … number 65.

Both former President Carter and first lady Michelle Obama did far better in the poll than the current commander in chief, at numbers 24 and 19 respectively.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was the 51st-most-trusted person, according to the poll.

But which individual do Americans say they trust most? None other than Tom Hanks — the “Castaway” actor took the top slot on the list.
