America, Bernie Sanders, and Beyonce: Obama Named 'Most Admired Man' Again, Beats Out Trump @balleralert Obama Named 'Most Admired Man' Again, Beats Out Trump - blogged by: @ashleytearra ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Former President BarackObama has been named the 'most admired man' for the tenth year in a row, according to a poll released by Gallup News. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Earlier in the month, Gallup surveyed 1,049 adults, asking which man and woman in the United States of America they admired most. This past Wednesday, those results were revealed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While Trump came in at 14%, Obama took the leading spot, sitting at 17% and beating Trump out by 3% in the men's poll. Hillary Clinton-who has held the 'most admired woman' title a total of 22 times, retained it for the 16th consecutive year, coming in at 9% to Michelle Obama's 7%. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, this happens to be Clinton's lowest percentage that she's received since 2002. Last year, she stood at 12%, while Barack Obama scored at 22%. But, although this year's percentage rates were relatively low, it's unquestionable that, even outside of the White House, everybody loves Obama! Obviously, that trumps all... even Mr. Trump, himself. No pun intended. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pope Francis, Rev. Billy Graham, John McCain, Elon Musk, Bernie Sanders, Bill Gates, Benjamin Netanyahu, Jeff Bezos, The Dalai Lama, and Mike Pence followed Donald Trump in the poll. Falling behind Michelle Obama was Oprah Winfrey, Elizabeth Warren, Angela Merkel, Queen Elizabeth II, Condoleezza Rice, Melania Trump, Nikki Haley, Duchess Kate Middleton, and Beyoncé Knowles-Carter. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Trump had 35% of Republican voters who chose him as their most admired man. Obama led among Democrats, with 39% making him their top choice. Independents also elected Obama over Trump by a three-point margin.
