Gallup: Obama, Hillary Clinton remain most admired



Former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton remain the most admired man and woman in the United States -- a 10-year trend for Obama and 16 years running for Clinton.

Gallup's December poll found 17% of respondents named Obama the man they admired most, a dip from 22% of respondents saying the same last year. President Donald Trump took second place with 14% of respondents citing him when asked, open-ended, to name the man they admired most.

Gallup said about one-quarter of respondents could not name a man or woman they admire most, roughly similar to last year's share who offered no opinion in response to the question.

The two presidents were the only ones to garner double digit support. Pope Francis took third place with 3% of respondents, and the rest of the top dozen men included politicians, religious figures and billionaires.

Clinton's 16th consecutive year topping the most admired women's poll showed her support dip this time from 12% to 9% of respondents. Former first lady Michelle Obama came in second with 7% of respondents, and the third place finisher at 4% support was Oprah Winfrey. The rest of the list included political figures, British royalty and Beyoncé Knowles. One percent of those surveyed named first lady Melania Trump their most admired woman, bringing her name into the top tier for the first time.

I was never embarrassed, never afraid he would offend our friends and allies, never afraid he would set off a world war.

7. Most admired woman in America for 16 years in a row?

Man, what a terrible candidate. Why did we ever nominate her?

20. As I recall the story that elected Trump, we didn't.

She stole it.

What the heck happened to all those lawsuits against her and the party in dozens of states, btw? And what happened to affordable college, rebuilding our infrastructure, putting solar power on America's homes, and lowering the Medicare age another decade to cover people entering their "medical" years?

11. Two REAL public servants

I miss a real president. I miss the president that should have been. Both have dedicated their adult lives to serving others. Look what we have instead.

13. She won the election, but when KGB agents are counting the votes in key states, shit happens.

The world loves these two, and hates Trump and he knows it, which actually makes him and Putin MORE dangerous.


I am watching a show called "Hunting Hitler" on History Channel (was that channel bought out by Rupert?) and it is pretty clear he escaped and did not die in that bunker.

What worries me is we know Trump admires and models himself after Hitler, this is common knowledge, well Hitler and Mussolini, what I am not sure about is how does he do that because he cant really read very well and I dont believe he has read Mein Kampf, maybe sections?

Anyway, world hates him, and this is good for his boss, Putin, but Trump being a 9 yr old spoiled brat, not good.

Oh, and surely Adolph is dead by now, but maybe he and Trump Sr. did business together?
