Hillary Clinton has been named the “Most Admired Woman” for the 15th time in a row, according to Gallup‘s annual poll.
It gets better. This is Hillary’s 21st time winning overall. Since her initial win in 1993 as First Lady, Clinton has topped the list every year but 1995 and 1996 (when she finished behind Mother Teresa) and 2001 (behind Laura Bush). Eleanor Roosevelt has the second-most No. 1 finishes among women, at 13.
First lady Michelle Obama finished second on the Most Admired Woman list this year, tied with 2012 as her best finish. The remainder of the top 10 most admired women include German Chancellor Angela Merkel, former and current talk-show hosts Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres, Queen Elizabeth of England, human rights activist Malala Yousafzai, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
As for Donald Trump?
He came in second…which is where he should’ve ended up in the presidential election.
For the ninth year in a row, President Obama is the man Americans admire the most. Obama won with 22 percent of the vote. Trump came in second with 15 percent, Pope Francis was third with 4 percent and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders came in fourth place with 2 percent of the vote.
From The Hill:
The poll is part of a longstanding tradition that started in 1946, in which Gallup asks Americans to name the man and woman, from anywhere in the world, whom they admire most. According to Gallup, incumbent presidents usually win with male distinction, with commanders in chief landing the top spot in 58 out of the 70 polls conducted over the years.
