Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton remain most admired in the US

Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton remain most admired in the US”

Trump came in second to Barack Obama, with the former president notching 17 percent of the vote to Trump's 14 percent.

President Trump finished second to his predecessor, Barack Obama, as America's Most Admired Man, according to a new Gallup poll.

Its not surprising that among Americans former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is the most admired woman in the world and former President Barack Obama is the most admired man in the world.

We can expect some angry tweets directed at Gallup about how its pollsters called the 2016 election wrong any minute now.

However, the website said Pres. Donald Trump's "unpopularity is holding him back from winning the most admired distinction".

Oprah Winfrey, who some say is rumored to be considering a run for President, comes in as the third most admired woman this year. "The incumbent president is the usual victor, since he is arguably the most prominent figure in the country", Gallup reports. Other men on the list include Pope Francis, John McCain, Elon Musk, Bernie Sanders, Bill Gates, Mike Pence, and The Dalai Lama. She has also held the title 22 times, more than any other person, either man or woman.

Gallup's poll of 1,049 United States adults was taken from December 4-11, 2017, with a margin of error of ±4% points.

"Hillary Clinton has been named most admired more than any woman - or man - in Gallup's polling history".

Gallup, however, offered that Clinton's time at the top of the "most admired" list may be running out. It was her 16th consecutive year, and Gallup sounds skeptical that the streak will continue, as "her popularity [is] at a nadir and the percentage naming her as most-admired the lowest in 15 years" at 9%. Former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt received the second highest number of wins with 13 nominations.
