Trump Loses Most Admired Man Title to Predecessor

Adjust Comment Print

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.

Former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have retained their titles as the man and woman most admired by Americans out of anyone in the entire world.

Another 9 percent name a friend or relative as their most admired man, with 13 percent doing the same for most admired woman.

Obama, who likewise held the title each time of his administration and the year he was chosen, beat out president Donald Trump this year, 17% to 14%.

Gallup has published the most admired man and woman list every year except for one since 1946.

Perhaps to clear the air, the 33-year-old concluded her argument with another tweet , simply writing, "Lol", along with a laughing emoji that had its tongue sticking out.

His margin over Trump, however, equates to an essential tie if factoring in the poll's margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4 percentage points at a 95 percent confidence level.

Gallup explains that Trump's unpopularity is likely what's holding him back from winning the most admired distinction. On the men's side, the 2016 election winner wasn't the, well, winner.

In the 71 years Gallup has conducted the most-admired poll, the current president has won the top title 58 times.

Other names high on the lists include: Pope Francis, Rev. Billy Graham, John McCain, Elon Musk, Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Elizabeth Warren, Angela Merkel and Queen Elizabeth II. A Gallup poll released earlier this month showed the share of US adults holding a favorable opinion of Clinton had dropped to 36 percent, a new low. Eleanor Roosevelt is second with 13 wins. She has claimed the title 22 times, more than anyone else. The top honor went again to Barack Obama, with President Trump in second place. "She managed to win this year because she remains arguably more prominent than other contenders".
