Television host Judge Judy, full name Judith Sheindlin, is No. 28 on the list, which makes her more trusted than all nine Supreme Court Justices. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg came closest at No. 36. Judge Joe Brown, another television courtroom host, was No. 39.
The poll, released Tuesday, surveyed 1,009 people online and found that actor Tom Hanks is the most trusted person in America. Rounding out the top five were Sandra Bullock, Denzel Washington, Meryl Streep and Maya Angelou.
The bottom five included Dr. Phil McGraw, Steve Forbes, New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, and at No. 100, Fox News anchor Shepherd Smith.
