Trump Is America's 2nd Most-Admired Man

Barack Obama is America's Most Admired Man in a new Gallup poll.

This is the 10th consecutive year Obama came out on top, although the percentage is down from 22 percent last year, to 17 percent this year.

As for some extra salt on the statistical slight, Trump's polarizing presidential rival, Hillary Clinton, remained the most admired woman for the 16th straight year.

The former secretary of state has held the title of "most admired" woman for a total of 22 times.

Only one other man-another former president-has been this admired in Gallup's poll.

Gallup's December poll found 17% of respondents named Obama the man they admired most, a dip from 22% of respondents saying the same previous year.

Other notable names making the top 10 include Pope Francis, Rev. Billy Graham, Oprah Winfrey and Sen.

First lady Melania Trump registered a 1 percent, which tied her with Condoleezza Rice, Nikki Haley, Duchess Kate Middleton and Beyonce.

Although Trump won easily among Republicans, with 35 percent naming him as the man they admire most, Obama led among both Democrats, with 39 percent naming him, and independents, with 12 percent saying they admire him most, according to the results. 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. The poll, conducted by Gallup, has been conducted since 1946.

Donald Trump trailed Obama in second place for the men while Michelle Obama was close behind Clinton in second place for the women. "Eleanor Roosevelt is second with 13 wins", Gallup reports.

Finally, the poll also points out that although Clinton took the No. 1 spot for women this year, the likelihood that she will retain this honor in the future remains uncertain and will be "challenging in coming years with her political career likely over".
