Obama beats Trump in America's Most Admired Man poll

Foreign policy wins of 2017

As was to be expected, Trump won among Republicans with 35% of GOP members polled naming him the man they admire most while Obama nabbed praise from 39% of Democrats polled.

Former president Barack Obama and former candidate Hillary Clinton are the most admired man and woman in the USA, according to the Gallup poll.

Seventeen per cent of the Americans who polled said Obama was the man they admired most, down from 22 per cent a year ago. Of the 71 times Gallup has posed the most admired man question, the incumbent has won 58.

The 44th president of the United States has captured Gallup's "Most Admired Man" title for the 10th year in a row.

This year marks the 16th consecutive year that Clinton has taken the top spot as the most admired woman.

Hillary Clinton has been named "most-admired" more than any other woman or man in Gallup's polling history - 22 times in total.




Donald Trump got 14 per cent of the vote, compared to Obama's 17 per cent.

Obama retained his top title for the 10th straight year, Gallup said.

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.

However, Gallup is uncertainly whether she'll continue to come out on top.

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. "She managed to win this year because she remains arguably more prominent than other contenders".

Different names high on the rundowns include: Pope Francis, Rev. Billy Graham, John McCain, Elon Musk, Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Elizabeth Warren, Angela Merkel and Queen Elizabeth II. "However, retaining that stature may be more challenging in coming years with her political career likely over".
