Michelle Obama is Again America's Most Admired Woman
The results of Gallup's annual "Most Admired" man and woman polling was announced yesterday and America still respects its former first lady.
Michelle Obama is far and away the most admired woman in America with current first lady Melania Trump finishing a rather distant second. They were followed by talk show host Oprah Winfrey, Hillary Clinton and teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg.
Among the men, Donald Trump tied Barack Obama and they were far ahead of everyone else. It was Obama's 12th first place finish and the first for Trump. Obama has now tied Dwight Eisenhower for the most first place finishes.
Gallup: "The post-presidency popularity for Obama and Eisenhower allowed each to finish first a record 12 times. Each man was named most admired man in the year he was elected president and all eight years he was in office, plus three additional years. Obama has finished first during the first three years after he left office, while Eisenhower won once before he ran for president (1950) and twice after leaving office (1967 and 1968)."
