Americans ranked former first lady Michelle Obama as the most admired woman in the world in Gallup’s annual poll. It’s the first time in 17 years former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton didn’t top the list.
Former President Barack Obama topped the list for most admired man for the 11th year in a row.
Michelle Obama was runner-up to Clinton on the list for the past three years, but she has been in the public eye lately with the publication of her bestselling memoir, “Becoming.”
From Dec. 3 to Dec. 12, Gallup conducted phone interviews with a random sample of 1,025 Americans, asking them to name the man or woman living in any country who they most admire. The results were published Thursday.
In voting for most-admired woman, 15 percent named Obama and 5 percent named media executive Oprah Winfrey. Clinton and current first lady Melania Trump tied for third at 4 percent.
Barack Obama topped the men’s list with 19 percent, and President Trump came in second for the fourth consecutive year with 13 percent. Former President George W. Bush and Pope Francis tied for third with 2 percent.
So it’s not Melania by a long shot and for me, Obama trounces Trump. Imagine that, this puts Harpo and Mark in the minority.
