Are these sentences correct:

1-Worse than him are the people who support him.

2-Better than her are those who fight for her rights.

It seems to me that they are both fine.

Gratefully,
Navi.

I will stop myself from commenting on the grammar of these sentences and wait for native speakers' thoughts. The way I would write it is:

The people who support him are even worse than him. (colloquial)

The people who support him are even worse than he (is). (formal)

The people supporting him are even worse than him. (colloquial)

One note on the use of the adverb 'gratefully'. You can do something gratefully, say, nod gratefully. The adverb standing on its own does not make much sense.

regards,

Dave

I think these sentences are perfect.

That depends on whose rights 'those' are fighting for, hers or theirs.
