Trump Is America's 2nd Most-Admired Man

Trump Is America's 2nd Most-Admired Man”

It's been over a year (!) since Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election, and the American people still can't help but admire the former secretary of state.

Trump's second place standing adds his name to a rare subset of incumbent presidents; those who failed to be named Gallup's most admired man. According to a recent Gallup poll, Clinton is the most admired woman by Americans, edging out Michelle Obama by two percent.

Gallup, which has conducted its poll to determine the most admired person in the country 71 times since 1946 determines results "based on telephone interviews conducted December 4-11, 2017, with a random sample of 1,049 adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 USA states and the District of Columbia", according to Gallup.

This is unedited, unformatted feed from the Press Trust of India wire. Of the 71 times Gallup has posed the most admired man question, the incumbent has won 58.

Still, it's the 22nd time Clinton's been rated the most admired woman - more than any other man or woman ever on the list. Obama is only the second former president to finish first in the list-along with Eisenhower in 1967 and 1968, while Pres. Lyndon B. Johnson was finishing up his time in office. A Gallup poll released earlier this month showed the share of USA adults holding a favorable opinion of Clinton had dropped to 36%, a new low. The next winningest woman is Eleanor Roosevelt, at 13 times. Pope Francis took third place with 3% of respondents, and the rest of the top dozen men included politicians, religious figures and billionaires.

Oprah Winfrey, who some say is rumored to be considering a run for President, comes in as the third most admired woman this year. "She managed to win this year because she remains arguably more prominent than other contenders".
