Barack Obama,Hillary Clinton Most Admired

Former president Barack Obama is still America's most admired man, according to Gallup's Most Admired Man and Woman poll published Wednesday.

Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have topped Gallup's list for the most admired man and woman living anywhere in the world-the tenth consecutive year for the former president and the 16th such recognition for the former secretary of state.

The survey, which polled more than 1,000 American adults from December 4 to 11, found that 17 percent of respondents most admire Obama, compared to 14 percent who most admire Trump.

Hillary Clinton was named the most appreciated lady for the sixteenth successive year and has held the spot 22 times add up to, more than Eleanor Roosevelt who held the Gallup title 13 times.

Gallup's poll was conducted December 4 through December 11.

Trump was looking up to him in the polls, with 14% saying they most admired the current President. "The incumbent president is the usual victor, since he is arguably the most prominent figure in the country", Gallup reports.

For men, former president Dwight Eisenhower holds the highest number of wins with 12 distinctions.

Gallup has conducted the "most admired" survey every year since 1946, with the exception of 1976. He came in second a year ago as well, but with a slightly higher percentage-15 percent. Former first lady Michelle Obama came in second with 7 percent of respondents, and the third place finisher at 4 percent support was Oprah Winfrey. "She managed to win this year because she remains arguably more prominent than other contenders".

Others receiving votes as most admired man this year include Pope Francis, Billy Graham, John McCain, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and the Dalai Lama. "However, retaining that stature may be more challenging in coming years with her political career likely over", the poll stated online.
