How tall is Barack Obama

Barack Obama's Height

6ft 1in (185 cm)

ABarack Hussein Obama is an American politician, who from 2009 to 2017 was the 44th President.. One newspaper seemingly asked his press office to which they said "roughly 6ft 1". In 2010 his Whitehouse medical had him listed as 6ft 1 and 179.9 pounds (in shoes/clothes). In 2016 though, his physical resulted in a height increase to 6ft 1.5.
The First Lady, Michelle Obama stated her height in Women's Health (2009): "I'm 5' 11'".

185cm maybe 185.5. No less no more
Mark(5'9.25") said on 19/Apr/17
Obama is really the example of a 6'1"-6'1.25" person.
shiva 181 cms said on 18/Apr/17
He looks an exact 6'1 as tall as a legitimate 6'1 guy can be
This listing is spot on
Kaneff 6'0.25 said on 18/Apr/17
He's pretty much a textbook example of 6'1". 185.5cm
Cq: said on 18/Apr/17
I think obama could easily claim to be at least 6 2. If trump gets away calling himself 6 3 then obama is taller than trump and should be marked at 6 4 in fact. He is certainly one of the tallest 6 1s i have ever seen. So i honestly think around 6 2 is fine. I think its fair to say most people his height call themselves 6 2 and pass for it. In shoes with a bit of hair i think he would touch the 6 3 mark comfortably and even just brush past it.
Warren said on 17/Apr/17
Hi Rob let me ask u once again, which is u think taller Obama or Trump now?
I still think Trump a bit taller than Obama or at least they r the same to me
imo is Obama 182-183cm, Trump 183-184cm
Editor Rob: I think Trump is still a fraction shy of Obama, although at times they can look quite close.
Ron said on 15/Apr/17
Rob who do you think is taller him or Murray?
Editor Rob: Murray looks taller from what I've seen of both.
Hans Meiser said on 14/Apr/17
He always seemed tall to me.
Canson said on 11/Apr/17
A 195 (194.945 to be precise) Kobe Bryant makes Obama about 185cm-185.5 at his lowest. He's in that boat where he's close enough to 6'1" to claim it.

i honestly think obama would clear 186cm because he always seems to have a inch and and a half on most 6ft flat celebs.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Apr/17
I think 186cm is debatable. Doesn't look to have really lost anything
berta said on 9/Apr/17
i still feel that the odds for obama is higher that he will measure 186 range than under 185. 186 is what he looks.
HonestSlovene said on 7/Apr/17
@S.J.H Isn't Kobe about 6'5"? If so, he looks exactly 4 in shorter, making him roughly 6'1". The listing is spot on. My prediction is that he will hold on to at least 184 cm untill his late 60s, then he will go under the 6'0" by the age of 75-80.
S.J.H said on 6/Apr/17
Click Here Obama is 184cm
HonestSlovene said on 4/Apr/17
@TMI Probably lost about 0.25-0.5 and is roughly 6'1" flat now. Same happened to my father (went from 5'11.5" at 50 to about 5'11"-5'11.25" at 59), just like Cameron said shrinkage for men usually starts after 50, for women after 45.
Borats Chicken said on 4/Apr/17
rob, how tall would Joe Biden be 6ft range?
Cameron said on 3/Apr/17
@TMI I doubt he's lost anything noticeable yet. Maybe 1/4 of an inch at most.
TMI said on 3/Apr/17
Is it possible he's lost any height? Typically people start getting shorter in their mid 50's
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 2/Apr/17
His 6ft1.5 mesurement in 2016 most likely took place barefoot during early morning, because in order for him to be measured at 6ft1.5 in shoes, he must be no taller than 6ft0.5, which I can't see him being.

out of bed/early morning: 6ft1.5
afternoon/evening: 6ft1
before bed: 6ft0.75-6ft1
Chris said on 28/Mar/17
So you have a 2016 medical stating he is 6'1.5 exactly, and you're still debating it?

Why do you have him as 6'1 when you have scientific evidence he's 6'1.5?
Editor Rob: his medical from several years earlier had him at 6ft 1.

It's unknown whether it was socks or shoes though.
S.J.H said on 27/Mar/17

Atually Kobe bryant make obama look like a max 6'0.5 , he maybe 6'1.5 put on shoes on a measurement
Dejavu said on 25/Mar/17
I thought he looked 0.5-1 inch taller than Trump.
John said on 24/Mar/17
Maybe not EXACTLY 2 inches taller. But he was a good 1-1.25 inches taller than Trump, who is 6'0.5. I'd peg Obama at 6'1.5.
HonestSlovene said on 21/Mar/17
@John Since when did he look 2 in taller than Trump? Both look within half an inch of each other at about 6'1" and Trump was taller than him in his 20-40s at an easy 6'2" peak.
Canson said on 20/Mar/17
@S.J.H: I doubt he's under maybe 6'0.5-6'.75 at his lowest. He looks near 6'1" most of the time
S.J.H said on 19/Mar/17
6'1.5" measurement morning with shoes and down to 6'0 might be true height
MrTBlack said on 19/Mar/17
That 6'1.5" measurement must have been a 1st thing in the morning measurement since to dip down to 6'1" flat would usually be within 6 hours tops if even that
S.J.H said on 18/Mar/17

Lol obama was not over half inch taller than trump. HeightGuesstimator could have mean obama is 183cm but convert wrong in ft. Consider 6'4.75 kobe bryant look a full 197cm with obama. obama could be measured 6'1 in dress shoes and 6'0 barefeet
John said on 18/Mar/17
5'11? Not even close. He was at least 2 inches taller than Trump, and Trump is obviously not 5'9.
HeightGuesstimator said on 17/Mar/17
I stood right behind Barack Obama at a rally in Oakland, CA in 2007. People were really rallying him as a rock star back in the day. I'm a very accurate height-guesser. He looked about 5'11" to me, slim, elegant, someone you like and respect. He's so not 6'1".
Csimpson 6ft said on 16/Mar/17
Rob is 6ft 0.75 for Obama possible?
Editor Rob: I'd say that would be an extreme low range for Obama.
TheManWithNoName said on 7/Mar/17
Hey Rob, two questions:

1. How tall would you say comedian Marc Maron is? I've seen listings as high as 5'11" and as low as 5'8".

Click Here:
(with President Obama)

2. Would President Obama's history of chain-smoking affect his height as he ages more so than a non-smoker?
Editor Rob: it could effect the body's abilities, namely increase risks of bone loss/ osteoporosis.

the other chap looks near 5ft 8.
Dave said on 7/Mar/17
Rob, lets say both were measured without shoes, do you think its possible Obama increased his height?
Editor Rob: I don't think he increased it...but Obama certainly could have stood better for a measurement or got rounded up a little.

The 'bust a gut' measurement can add a fraction.
MrFish said on 27/Feb/17
Rob, I met Mitt Romney today (he's a month short of 70 years old). I'd say he's definitely between 184 and 186. A friend of mine is 188 and is clearly taller than Romney. I'd say 187-188 peak, 185 now.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Feb/17
Rob, is 6ft1½ peak (pre-presidency days) arguable?
Editor Rob: I think I'm still happy with about 6ft 1 for him, maybe at 10am he could have been 186 range.
berta said on 23/Feb/17
i think its strange that the average guess is under 6y foot 1. i thought it woulb be liks 186,2 or me he looks like a guy that never goes under 6 foot 1 and probably most days are 186 in the efternon
DetroitMichigan said on 16/Feb/17
@nick92 after this picture it seems clear Malia is under 5'11
HonestSlovene said on 15/Feb/17
@nick92 Drake is 5'11" and Obama is 6'1" so this is spot on IMHO. Drake's leaning in so he is loosing 1 in (he looks 3 inches shorter).
nick92 said on 11/Feb/17
is obama really 185cm flat look at him with drake and drake has a footwear advantage Click Here
Andrea said on 7/Feb/17
Whether Obama got measured in shoes or not is not arguable... He looks a genuine 6'1, barefoot! If he really was 6' range, many celebrities should be drastically downgraded! Even Rob... I mean, look at him with Jeremy, that Rob has met and said he is not shorter than him and likely a smidge taller: Click Here
There's not a chance he's 6'1 in shoes, unless he consistenly wears lifts but I highly doubt it ;)
He's probably one of the most genuine 6'1 on here!!!
Canson said on 6/Feb/17
@Honestslovene: have to remember Berta doesn't lose much height throughout the day (an anomaly). maybe why he sometimes overestimates
Johnson said on 6/Feb/17
You all shouldconsider presidents of the USA are registered from half inch to half inch, I mean 5'9.25 would be consider 5'9 and 5'9.75 would be 5'10.

The 6'1.5 for Obama must be a day passing 6'1.25 mark and the 6'1 could be just under 6'1.25 mark
Peter 179cm said on 6/Feb/17
If Obama is really 6'1 WITH shoes and 6'0 barefoot i guess Trump should also be downgraded to atleast 183cm if not 182cm since they look very similar height-wise.
HonestSlovene said on 5/Feb/17
@berta He can look 186 cm because that is his height earlier in the day. 185 cm before bed and 187 cm in the morning. Overral a solid 185 cm guy or 6'1".A fraction taller in his 20s-40s (6'1.25" or 186 cm).
lazare said on 30/Jan/17
Click Here 6'4 Ange Kagame with 5'11 listed Alek Wek
She can look 6'3"5 easily
berta said on 27/Jan/17
to me he looks taller than 185 beside tom hanks and all other actors he have been with. 186 is good guess 187 is little to mutch.
Willes189 said on 26/Jan/17
Lol no way that Ange Kagame is 6'3, are you out of your mind? 6'4 is the lowest of the low for her, and she could very well be closer to 6'5. She is extremely tall
Warren said on 26/Jan/17
Those pictures are a bit difference angles and we can't see their feets,
but yeah I do believe that Obama is 6'0" barefoot and Leo is more like 179 to me
Dmeyer said on 25/Jan/17
On the vidéo Trump dosnt look shorter than obama
S.J.H said on 25/Jan/17

Just a fact that kobe claim he was only 6'4.5 and 6'5 in sneakers and obama look about 4.5 shorter than kobe. If that this report is true therefore obama is about 6'0 barefoot and the journalist who met leonardo dicaprio in person say that leo was not over 178cm which is reliable

Johnson said on 24/Jan/17
@Warren @Rob In those cases, normally they measure and weigh people with clothes and shoes, and in the case of height they discount 2 centimetres or an inch, example (measured at 6'2 so they write down 6'1), I know of people measure this way at the doctor and medical tests
DetroitMichigan said on 24/Jan/17
Hey Rob
Could you make a profil for Ange Kagame, she pretends to be 6'4" on his Twitter. I guess it's right or maybe 6'3"
Warren said on 24/Jan/17
hey guys and Rob plz read this, then Obama should be change to 182 or 183 in barefoot

"Sunday's report said Obama is 6-foot-1 (1.85-meter) and weighs 180 pounds (82 kilograms) in shoes and exercise clothing."
Click Here
Editor Rob: yes, I am aware, the problem is that in the actual medical report it said.

Height: 73 inches
Weight: 179.9 pounds (with shoes and workout attire)

the question was always whether he kept shoes on for the height portion of his physical...
Johnson said on 23/Jan/17
Now I read all Obama's medical reports: 2010: 6'1 and 179.9 pounds, 2011: 6'1 and 181.3 pounds, 2014: 6'1 and 180 pounds, 2016: 6'1.5 and 175 pounds.

In 2007 and 2008, before being president, Obama did not released height data
Canson said on 23/Jan/17
He would measure similar to Christiano Renaldo. 187-187.5 out of bed 185-185.5 at his lowest. If not a full 6'1 afternoon/evening (he likely isn't because the measurements don't take place that late), he's at least 6'0 7/8 or 3/4
Johnson said on 23/Jan/17
Yes, I have read information about 3 medical tests 2010 2014 (the one of 6'1.5) and 2016. 2010 is lost so far in the web
Editor Rob: the link at the top of the page is to the archive version, here it is Again
Johnson said on 23/Jan/17
What about Obama's medical check of 2011? I didn't find information in the net
Editor Rob: I updated the link at the top to the archived version of Obama's 2010 medical report.

The question is if he was weighed in clothing and shoes, did he then take shoes off for the 6ft 1 would seem likely that he did...
Johnson said on 22/Jan/17
Shorter than 187 cm Trump.
Obama is 185.5. Trump was a legit 6'3 as young. At 70 slouching and with bad posture, still is taller than Obama
Will said on 21/Jan/17
I would say he is 186 max before bed time. i.e. if Donald Trump is 185 max, they looked no more than half an inch different in height during the inaugural, remember Trump slouches abit.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jan/17
186cm peak is arguable…
Canson said on 12/Jan/17
Out of bed 187-187.5
Before bed 185-185.5

Keep in mind he also got a 6'1 listing deep into his 40s and this is how he looks next to 6'4.5 Michael Jordan or other celebs
berta said on 10/Jan/17
to me he lokes 186-187 just looke at him with tom hanks there is about 5 cm beetween them and hanks is 182-183 these days. i dont think obama is 187-188 but wehat i mean is 185 is to low in some way and 186 looks perfect to me.
Andie said on 7/Jan/17
And what about his daughters rob?
Do you have a rough guess for them?
I think malia is 6'.05 and sasha 5'9
Editor Rob: the elder daughter looks a bit taller than Michelle, so over 5ft 11 is very likely.
Andie said on 7/Jan/17
Rob, lets say he is 185.5 at his low, (like he is going to bed with this height) than it would be more appropriate to list him at 6'1.25 rigt rob?
Like 6'1.25 would be a small round up, but closer to the truth as his height would be about 186.
In my opinion that might be the case, since he said roughly 6'1 and he can look more than 6'1.
1/4 or 0.25 is just a small change, so he just rounds it down to a flat 6'1.
If he was 6'1.5, than i think he would say the 1/2 or say6'2.
Could that be right rob?
Editor Rob: I think you can make an argument for a little over 6ft 1, but I think he is probably a good example of 6ft 1.
tony t. said on 7/Jan/17
Actually my last comment doesn't matter. They look about the same height when looking at some other pics.
tony t. said on 7/Jan/17
Why was 6'1 Charles Woodson taller than him whenever the Packers visited the White House after they won the Superbowl?
Ellym said on 4/Jan/17
I don't think he is 6'1 in a photo next to Kevin Costner he is clearly shorter, although Costner is closer to the camera he is still quite a bit taller, if Costner is 6'1 then Obama is not.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 28/Dec/16
I would argue 6'1.25". Easily 187-188 cm with footwear.
Canson said on 28/Dec/16
Jordan isn't 6'6". He's listed 6'5" here but I think now this is good enough evidence to show he is 6'4.5 like it was claimed when he came in the league and that Obama is a flat 6'1.
Al said on 26/Dec/16
Obama recently Awarded Michael Jordan at the whitehouse and he only looked 3 inches shorter than Jordan. Jordan is 6'6 so is obama 6'3 or wearing lifts?
Editor Rob: Al, it is doubtful Obama is a lift-wearer.

But then, some men have done it as an 🖕 to troll others in real life. When you have a big guy like Klitschko trolling people by wearing lifts, you just never know...
Asian guy said on 21/Dec/16
I have met Loong a couple of times and he's around 5'10.5-5'11 range. I'm personally 6'2. He's probably 5'11.75 in shoes
MD said on 19/Dec/16
Thought it may look it on first blush, that's not a great comparison photo. I've always thought the Singapore president looked closer to 5'11" than he did 6'0".

Speaking of political leaders, I was surprised to find New Zealand's new PM is just as tall if not ever-so-slightly-shorter than long-time PM John Key, who is 5'9" tops. If it makes any sense, he seems to have a face/bearing of a taller man.
Johnson said on 16/Dec/16
I would say Loong is more of a 5'11-5'11.25 person(180cm-181cm). He can't be 6 foot because when he was pictured with Malcolm Turnbull(he's listed 5'10 on google), he looks to have an inch over him
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 15/Dec/16
Johnson said on 12/Dec/16
Rob, how tall do u think Singapore PM is next to Obama?Click Here


Without knowing their footwear, he looks a legit 6ft in the photo, as listed on Google. But the camera angle gives Loong a slight advantage, so he might be 5ft11.5 in reality.

He hasn't really lost anything, unlike Clinton who I think lost some height by the time he got out of the White House
James said on 3/Dec/16
He never was over 6' 1" that's for sure.

Solid 184cm
Mark(5'9.25") said on 2/Dec/16
I think a big 6'1" like 6'1.25"-6'1.5" would fit Obama at his peak. Today, nothing less of 6'1".
packman said on 26/Nov/16
Flat 6ft for sure
Editor Rob: for Obama, I don't think there has been any serious guesses of him as 6ft flat, most have been 6ft 1-1.5 range from what I seen...

with some listings there's a bigger range of guesses, but Obama is one of the more agreeable ranges.
Judd said on 24/Nov/16
It's curious thinking about presidents height:

Bill Clinton was listed at 6'2.5", here his peak scheduled is 6'2 but i am sure he never been taller than 6'1.25-1.5"; George W Bush was listed 5'11.75" but he never looked taller than a flat 5'11...then Obama was listed before 6'1 and then 6'1.5"...i am very curious regarding the medical sheet of Donald Trump...

Then IMO the 6'1 Obama's measurement was barefeet or in socks!
avi said on 23/Nov/16
Looks under 6'1 next to Michael Jordon who could be 6'5 and change.
184-182 said on 23/Nov/16
If you looked up 6'1" in the dictionary, you'd see a picture of Obama
Canson said on 23/Nov/16
Good point James!
James186cm said on 22/Nov/16
Keep in mind Obama used to be a chain smoker. Not entirely sure if that would have a serious impact on his height, but I doubt its helped him as he aged (now 55).
James said on 22/Nov/16
@Rampage(-_-_-)Clover Nope.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Nov/16
6ft2 range in shoes
slurkapfson said on 19/Nov/16
Obama is a solid 6'1, and looks tall in appearance and amongst others. I think 185cm is fair, but he's probably 187 when he wakes, and is a solid 6'1, at around 186 ish later morning to afternoon. I think it would be fairer to list him as closer to 186.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 18/Nov/16
Rob, would Obama be similar to Luke Mitchell in certain days?
Editor Rob: yes Mark he might at lunchtime be near 186
Canson said on 18/Nov/16
I agree with Rampage. Today maybe 6'1.5 out of bed 6'0.75 at his lowest. I can see him measuring 6'1 flat a couple hours awake like he did in 2008 and be 1/4 under later.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Nov/16
6ft2 straight out of bed in his 20's-30's is possible. Could have been in that strong 6ft1 zone.
Ray said on 15/Nov/16
He's easily a strong 6'1", and probably wakes up at around 6'2".
Z said on 12/Nov/16
Rob, why would you not want to do a page on the Obama daughters?
Editor Rob: Z, I haven't ruled it out.

One of my 6'1 friend who got up a afternoon measurement at 6'1.5 as medical result i see which is measure in a digital scan machine in hospital and i suspect no way his more than 185.5cm max so i get out a measuring tape measure him in an early noon 1pm and he barely reach up 185.4cm which is right at 6'1 and he was even low as 185.1cm at night i measure him the same day. Maybe the case of obama 6'1.5 get up from.
S.J.H said on 4/Nov/16
Before i see 186cm tony parker look taller than obama i always thought so 186 187cm for obama and since parker is really 186cm then 185cm dead on obama. The 6'1.5 probably a morning an error or false measurement like a digital machine
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 1/Nov/16
Rob, who do you think is taller of the two: Obama or Cristiano Ronaldo? They both look legitimate 6ft1 guys to me.
Editor Rob: would certainly be interesting if they ever met, I think you might find both are 6ft 1 at their low marks.
Mark said on 26/Oct/16
I'm not one for the political world, but Obama is one of the few solid 6'1" people here. Nothing under that and would measure 186 cm in a good day.
HonestSlovene said on 22/Oct/16
He is pretty much bang on 6'1. A perfect example that a legit 6'1 in the west is solid tall and about 1 standard deviation above average in the west (5'10 or 177-178 cm is average).
bruh said on 20/Oct/16
Hey Rob, are you gonna add the Obama girls? Malia looks 5'11.5'' her fathers not much taller than her, and Sasha is maybe like 5'9.5''.
Editor Rob: 5ft 11 and something is quite possible, but I'm not sure about a page for them..
berta said on 18/Oct/16
always looks atleast 185 exept from when he meet basket stars. all the other times he can look more 186,5

Editor Rob: taller than her Mother now
Brandon said on 17/Oct/16
PhysicsEnemy said on 16/Oct/16
Rob - Wouldn't his 2010 physical likely be in shoes, since his weigh-in was?

Based on that he would be 6'-6'0.25".
Editor Rob: the fact the first medical mentioned shoes...well, it could be argued that if he stood on a scale with shoes on, he may have then got measured in them.

but, I think he too often looks 6ft 1 for it to have been in shoes.
Aza said on 7/Oct/16
Really interested in how at his physical he gained half an inch. Guess it might have been early morning or the guy is really taking care of his posture. I will go with 6'1.25
Purple said on 5/Oct/16
I sometimes wonder if he has special shoes for certain occasions. Sometimes when officially photographed with other people, he seems to tilt forward a bit. Interestingly both him and his wife are usually impeccably turned out with cuts that favour their proportions. While they certainly have stylists and tailors that help them get the best out of a ceap dress, so much for shopping at cheaper stores, people who are concerned about their heigth should really take notice.
Borats Chicken said on 4/Oct/16
Rob, since it says 'President Barack Obama's official height'(I'm seening it next to my tabs) are you gonna change to Fmr or something like that?
Editor Rob: yeah I can change it when he's gone from Office.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Oct/16
186cm in his 20's-30's is debatable. Some guys don't lose anything in their 50's. Obama and Bill Murray are two guys I can think of...
Height Analysis said on 1/Oct/16
People would think he is 6'2/6'3 but he's an example of how a real 6'1 person would looks like.

Looks the same exact height as David Cameron to me. Would be surprised if he were 6'1 without shoes day or evening time. More like 6.50 to 6.75 inches.

6'1.5" would be the minimum for obama, maybe even a quarter inch more. Looks very close in height to 6.2.75" prince william

6'1.75" looks more and more probable, yet posters keep trying to downgrade him. He stands taller than all living former presidents consistently yet always is listed as shorter than presidents who have claimed 6'2" or more in the past.
Andrea said on 3/Sep/16
Rob, do you think it is worth adding Bill de Blasio?
He has claimed to be 6'6 on Twitter and he really looks genuinely near 6'6 with Obama... He looks much more 6'6 than many guys listed at that mark on this site!

There's absolutely no way Chris Christie is 5' 11". Obama is a solid four inches taller. Can you do a page on him? I guess like 5' 8.5".
heelshealheight said on 7/Aug/16
Interestingly enough, Obama's daughter, Malia, is listed as 1.85m. Although she's not as tall as her father, Malia constitutes the example of what truly tall people look like. She hardly ever wears high heels (she almost always wears flats), and yet she continues to look almost as tall as her father. Tall women/men have both long legs and a relatively long torso, as in the case of Malia.

If I had to guess the 2008 measurement was barefoot (morning possibly) and it did say "roughly" 6'1". Steph curry also got a morning measurement at 6'2. Curry's may have been earlier and it looks maybe a 3/4" . That said: curry looks 6'1.5/ President Obama 6'0.75
Canson said on 6/Jul/16

Rob, Obama met Prince William at Buckingham Pakace the other day. Several pictures were taken and in virtually all of them Prince William has the edge on him by a maximum of 1 inch. Same footwear. However on this site William you have at 6'2.75" could Obama really be 6'1.5" or could William be closer to 6'2.25"? Last question are you quoting all the heights on this site as their afternoon/close to lowest, or midway average which I find most people achieve by usually late morning?

Editor Rob: based on obama with some basketball players I think around 6ft 1 is ok, 186cm is very arguable for a brunch time measurement.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Mar/16
It's probable that he got measured somewhere in 186-187cm at 10:00am and they just put down 6ft1½. I think Clinton and Bush Sr. were also measured 189cm in the early morning and that's why they may have got listed at 6ft2½. Same goes for G.W. Bush at 5ft11½.

I've seen more than once people saying that Ryan is shorter, but everything I've ever seen them in when they are right next to one another shows that if anything, Ryan is ever-so-slightly taller.

We are the sages of height on this board. If Obama was measured at 9 a.m. this time to 3:30 p.m. when he took office. There is a possibility of the height being accurate. Also, if we look at his photos with Zach Quinto or Brandon Routh. Obama looks closer to 6'2" than 6'1". Many have said that our height fluctuates depending on the height methodology and the time of day.
Gary said on 13/Mar/16
That's odd, maybe he has a better posture than his previous campaigns/elections or whatever. Although, he seemed to lawyers have good posture ever since 2008. Can you actually reach puberty as age 50?!?!:()
SportsHeight said on 13/Mar/16
Rob, the 2010 physical exam where he first got measured at 73 inches was reported as having taken place in the morning. Surely this means the 73.5-inch measurement was with shoes on? Do you think this could mean that he's more in the 6'0.5" range barefoot (if the exam were taken in the middle of the day)?
Editor Rob: if it was the same stadiometer used for these measurements it's certainly interesting...

It's always possible he was a little over 6ft 1 for one measurement and had 73 inches noted, then in the other was almost 73.5 and had his height rounded up a little...

It would be strange to take a shoe height, but it's not impossible.
MD said on 11/Mar/16
Definitely different time of day, and it's realistic to me since 6'1" is clearly not a morning height.

All politicans inflate their heights, either they claim it in shoes or they're shrunked due to age.
John said on 9/Mar/16
The more I analyze pictures of Obama, the more I see that he's not a legit 6'1" like most users here think he is. But I wouldn't put him at just 6'0" though. More like 6'0.5"

So here is my guess:

Donald Trump=6'0.75"-6'1" (peak height 6'2.25")
Johno said on 8/Mar/16
6'1 is most probable height, that description with "clothes/shoes" most likely relates to weight and i very much doubt he wear lifts. He is not that far off Prince William's height.
hambubger said on 7/Mar/16
Definitely a political bias to this guy's height. He's no more than 6'0" even and we have more references for him than just about everyone else. He was shorter than Romney who is 6'1", Romney being slightly shorter than Trump (check out the 2012 endorsement video) at 6'2".

As far as I can tell, Romney was taller than the president, if even just very marginally, so below 6'1" is kind of out of the question. I guess it depends on how much height you think he'd lost, but he struck me as nothing shorter than 6'1.25" - 6'1.5" in 2012.

Golden State Warriors visited White House and in the photo, the president definitely doesn't look 6'1" that he is listed here. I have always said that those measurements of Obama were in shoes, which puts him closer to 6".

@Rob how can he weigh around 80kg if he is 185cm? He can't be for sure over 75kg, he is very slim: I would say he weighs between 73kg and 75kg.

Rob, do you really believe that for Obama's White House physical they had him keep everything on for the weighing, and then said "Ok, now take your shoes off for the height measurement"? Seems a little strange to me. Do you really think that's what happened, or do you just think he looks a flat 6'1"?
Editor Rob: it does seem a little odd, but if he had shoes on then he's not much over 6ft barefoot, which I think seems too low from all we've seen of him.
MD said on 15/Jan/16
Ryan has claimed 6'2" and I at first believed it. Still, I'm not sure he's shorter than the president. I've seen other pictures of them in similar footwear showing him at least as high as the president.

I met him in person 7 years ago. He was a really tall, imposing guy. Standing at 6ft I had to really look up to him.In a crowd of dozens of people he was easily one of the tallest guys- only 2 of his bodyguards were taller. And not by much, an inch tops!
And I downgraded him BTW-he claims 191 cm while I think he's closer to 190 cm mark.
GP said on 16/Dec/15
All the photos you posted are not valid due to angles, footwear and the biggest of them all, just because people claim a height,it doesn't mean it's true.Looks like you didn't learn anything being on this site. Now if you told me that you have met any of these people then maybe I would believe your speculations or theories. The reason why I believe Parker's 186 claim is 1. NBA players round up their height and he clearly isn't doing that 2. I have seen him several times and he is around 6'1". Please stop trying to prove someone's height by posting random photos because you are not helping yourself, you're just showing that you have a perception of something and you just want to believe that by just looking at photos.

@Brad yes but solid 6'1 is 186 (185,5), not 185 cm. He should upgrade it. 6'1 is exactly 184.4 and I bet Obama is over flat 6'0.75 - 6'1, everybody would bet he is like 6'1.10

Click Here Guy on the right is our former PM Sanader in 2009 - I can guarantee you he is a legit 6'3 man and he only edged out Obama. I'm almost certain that Obama was 6'1.25 ("roughly 6'1˝ " ) back then. Nowadays he maybe dropped to flat 6'1, although I doubt it.
Nick22 said on 5/Dec/15
185 cm is spot on. He seems to be quite same in height as Fredrik Reinfeldt if you look at the photos of them together (I doubt Fredrik is 188 cm tall, more likely 186 cm).
GP said on 4/Dec/15
I think the 6'1" measurement was earlier in the day and the "roughly 6'1" is more accurate and he is 6'0.5", very less likely 6'0.75" since he was noticeably shorter than 186 Tony Parker.
MD said on 3/Dec/15
I don't get that impression from him, at all. He regularly doesn't stand his full height in pictures, though he doesn't slouch. If a leader is significantly shorter, in fact, he often bends at the waist. It's actually kind of awkward, because most folks just slouch if they want to look shorter.
Kevin said on 2/Dec/15
I think 6'1 is spot on, least in 2008 when he was on the campaign trail, he was 3 inches taller than me and he had the handshake down pat, alot of charisma in person...

6'1 is 185,4 cm, not flat 185 cm. If he is 6'1.15 he would be 185,8 cm, and that sounds reasonable. He need an upgrade to 186 cm in my opinion
plus said on 31/Oct/15
@Dan yes I agree plus he always has a good posture. He won't reach 6'1.5 mark but I would bet that he is into 6.1.25 mark at medical measurements

How tall do you think this guy is next to Obama?

[Editor Rob: he could be at least 6 inch taller]
Dan said on 25/Oct/15
I think Obama is a strong 6'1. His late afternoon height is probably 6'1.25.
plus said on 15/Oct/15
Could he be 186 cm? They just indicated 6'1 because they don't care about fractions. He could be 6'1.25 perfectly

How tall is the Swedish prime minister? (former one) Fredrik reihnfelth? I have read 188 i newspaper but he doesnt look taller than Obama in photos togetherherererer
[Editor Rob: yeah I wouldn't have thought he was 188 if he doesn't look taller than Obama.]
Andrea said on 11/Oct/15
Yeah, this is one of the few guys who are listed at 6'1 and look it! The listing is fine! Though, i wouldn't argue he's over 6'1, MD, just look at him with Brandon Routh or Kobe Bryant... Legit 6'1 guy, that's it!
MD said on 8/Oct/15
@grizz, at this point, I just ignore those folks. He's one of those rare people who evidence has proven to be honest about his height claim. Hell, if anything, we should be arguing if he's a quarter-inch taller. He's certainly not under 6'1" even still.

rob, I got a question. how tall is the guy next to obama here: Click Here

my estimate is somewhere near 6'4", but I'm not so sure.
[Editor Rob: yeah he doesn't look under that range standing there.]
grizz said on 5/Oct/15
Why, WHY are you insisting on this 6ft nonsense, guys?
plus said on 5/Oct/15
@Bishop, yes, totally true. Shame the jokers are in the net claiming 191 cm for her. I don't think malia will grow up taller. She's already 17!

Obama is 5''11.75 to 6 flat. 6''1 for all intents in footwear and real life stuff.
Judd ISR said on 23/Sep/15
Holycow, Obama is a honest 6'1"...I think at 99,99% the measurement was made barefeet, and Rob too.
There's also any chance that he was measured 6'1.1-1.15" and the doctor dropped to 6'1"...he always looked that height!
[Editor Rob: I'm certain the measurement was in socks, but the shoes/clothes just refers to his weight taken that way.]
holycow said on 22/Sep/15
in the white house medical, that means 6'1 in shoes. he's 6'0 or 5'11.5 barefooted

Romney I think was 188-189cm range peak.
He still looks near 6ft2 today. Edges Obama.
Ret said on 10/Sep/15
@mId said on 27/Jun/15 --great observation! You are spot on...I always said Holyfield was just under or not even 6' 1"...I am beginning to think just a hair over 6 feet.

How tall are John Edwards and Dennis Kucinich. They're listed at 5'11 and 5'7 respectively, but Edwards looks nothing over 5'10 flat next to Obama, although I'd say there's a 3-4 inch difference between Edwards and Kucinich.
qsd5 said on 26/Jul/15
184cm / 184.5cm by evening.
Bishop said on 7/Jul/15
Malia seems to edge out Michelle who I believe is more 179 cm today. She could be 180-181 cm.
Tunman said on 4/Jul/15
She's 17 today so unlikely to gain anything.Actually she didn't look different since the visit to South Africa in late 2013.5'11 range in my opinion.
Tunman said on 2/Jul/15
How tall Malia Obama is?I know one site says she's as tall as her 6'1 father but it seems a little exagerated.Still she looks not much shorter than him right?I think she outgrew her mother.She looks maybe 5'11 if not 5'11.5 I noticed she isn't fond of high footwear often wearing thin sandals.
Michelle looks more in the strong 5'10 range today possibly 179 but no more.Still possible she measured 179-80 in her heyday.

joe joe: You're right about that.. UFC seems to like to overlist(if it's them, or just take the Words of fighters promotors/agents or something. It's pretty safe to say that they don't measure them anyway) Randy, Hendo like you say are about 3" shorter than their listed heights(Randy was listed 6'2, and Hendo 6'1).. Overeem it seems is somewhere around 2-3" shorter than his listed too. And it looks like they've done the same to their newest signed "star" in CM PUNK.. On his fighter profile on the UFC website it says 6'2 when he's around 5'11 :) Silva however is pretty accurate at 6'2, I too like yourself have him at 6'1.5 Maybe 6'1 but I'm gonna say 6'1.5 for now. It seems to add up to 6'0.5 Holyfield based on their video together.

Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP: Wow, thanks buddy for the kind words :) I can understand how my walls of text can get on some people's nerves, but It's because I want to show people the steps that made me estimate a certain height for the person. I can keep it short and just say for instance that Anderson is ~6'1.5 but why should anyone believe me or take my word for it.. That's why I'd rather show a Little bit of where I got that from and let people make their own judgement. And I do it for people like you here who just want to know the real height, no matter what it is. I'm also like I said before cool with anyone having a different estimate than me.. And I'll be the first to admit I'm wrong if someone can provide better proof.. But do that, instead of just saying I'm wrong or something negative just because you(Not talking about you personally :) have another estimate.. Show me why you think I'm wrong.. It shouldn't be that hard If you're sure about your own estimate.. I mean people must have gotten their estimate from somewhere :)

I also just asked the guy I was talking about(Junior31) who's around these fighters(hangs at Floyds house at his birthday parties etc etc and have pics to prove it) on the Floyd Mayweather Junior page here, this:

"Btw if you read this Junior31: If I'm not mistaken, you posted on the Evander Holyfield page that you estimate him shy of 6'1 these days, right? I have Evander at ~6'0.5 myself.. Have you ever met him or what makes you estimate him just shy of 6'1 these days? Thanks in advance for your answer."

He had this to say as a reply:
"Hey pal. Yes I believe he looks a tad under 6'1 today. When he was competing he had amazing posture. Today he looks slumped. I think at his peak he was 6'1.25 with that amazing posture. Today a half inch or so less. He really looks weathered"

So take it for what it's worth.. I'm not saying I have 100% real proof, and I don't know their prime heights.. But this is what it seems like they are today. Romney can't be much more than 6'-6'0.5 tops based on this. And I haven't really looked that much into who is taller of Romney and Obama, but it's seems to me that the people here are agreeing that Romney is a Little taller than Obama. I just Think it adds up, Silva ~6'1.5 Holyfield ~6'0.5 Romney and Obama ~6' It would also add up to the weighed in shoes bit.. He was most likely measured at 6'1 in shoes too.. And ~6' barefooted. It's just what I figure/estimate from the "proof" I've seen. Other than that my guess is as good as all of yours. And with that I think I'll leave the Obama-page here because I don't think I have much more to add. Once again I apologize for the wall of text to the rest of the readers here, but I hope it can be usefull somehow to other people here trying to get an estimate of their own :) Peace!
