Trump Loses Most Admired Man Title to Predecessor

Trump Loses Most Admired Man Title to Predecessor

Mr. Obama narrowly beat out President Trump by a three-point margin of 17 percent to 14 percent.

Oprah Winfrey, who some say is rumored to be considering a run for President, comes in as the third most admired woman this year.

In the 71 years Gallup has gathered information, the present president has won the best title 58 times.

Gallup's poll was conducted December 4 through December 11. Dwight Eisenhower earned the distinction 12 times.

"Trump's unpopularity is holding him back from winning the most admired distinction", Gallup contended. On the men's side, the 2016 election winner wasn't the, well, winner. Pope Francis took third place with 3% of respondents, and the rest of the top dozen men included politicians, religious figures and billionaires.




Others who appeared on the list were Senator John McCain, Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Tesla futurist Elon Musk, and spiritual guru The Dalai Lama. Vice President Mike Pence tied for eighth place with 1 percent.

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

The former secretary of state has held the title of "most admired" woman for a total of 22 times. Nevertheless, Clinton retained enough support among the public to top every other woman on the list.

While Obama managed to be at the top for a 10th year, he has some way to go to match his female counterpart, Hillary Clinton. It was her 16th consecutive year, and Gallup sounds skeptical that the streak will continue, as "her popularity [is] at a nadir and the percentage naming her as most-admired the lowest in 15 years" at 9%.

Clinton "remains arguably more prominent than other contenders", Jones wrote in a blog post announcing the findings.
