Americans chose Barack Hussein Obama as the man they most admired, and they picked Hillary Clinton as the woman they most admire.
For seven decades, Gallup has asked Americans to name the man and woman living anywhere in the world whom they admire most.
Clinton has held the top women’s spot in each of the last 13 years, and 17 of the last 18, with that streak interrupted only by first lady Laura Bush in 2001 after the 9/11 terror attacks.
Obama has been the ‘most admired man’ in each of the last seven years, beginning with 2008, the year he was elected president.advertisement - story continues below
Apparently the American people who voted only watch main stream media because they are oblivious of the scandals that surround both these people.
Just to name a few: Benghazi, the IRS scandal, Clinton’s ongoing email fiasco, Fast & Furious which has long since been swept under the rug, how about our borders being wide open allowing thousands of illegals, and terrorists to flood the USA; let’s not forget the millions spent so they have benefits. Apparently they are not aware of Bowe Bergdahl being traded for 5 top level Taliban. The list is endless.
In total, Clinton has been most admired woman 19 times, easily the most of any woman in Gallup’s history of asking the most admired question, six more times than Eleanor Roosevelt. Clinton won the distinction from 1993 to 1994 and 1997 to 2000 when she was first lady; from 2002 to 2008 when she was a U.S. senator; and from 2009 to 2012 when she was secretary of state. Although she has had no formal public role during the last two years, she retains a high enough profile to top the list. Clinton is the presumed front-runner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, should she decide to run.
Clinton’s margin over second-place Oprah Winfrey is four percentage points, 12% to 8% — the smallest lead for Clinton since a two-point lead over Winfrey in 2007. During her years as most admired woman, Clinton’s lead over the second-place finisher has generally been smaller when she held a partisan political role as U.S. senator or a presidential candidate than when she held a less partisan role as first lady or secretary of state. The more politicized views of Clinton have also been evident in the decline in her favorable ratings among all Americans since she resigned as secretary of state.
Clinton and Winfrey are joined in the top 10 by Nobel Prize-winning Pakistani teen Malala Yousafzai, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, first lady Michelle Obama, actress and humanitarian Angelina Jolie, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, Princess Kate of England, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Laura Bush.
Winfrey now has 27 top 10 appearances, the fourth most of any woman. Queen Elizabeth II of England did not finish in the top 10 this year, but still holds the record of 46 appearances for all women historically. Clinton’s 23 top 10’s is fifth all time, while Rice (14 times) and Laura Bush (11 times) have also frequently ranked in the top 10.
