Michelle Obama Ends Hillary Clinton’s 17-Year Run as Most Admired Woman in US

President Trump loses out to Barack Obama for most admired man in the Gallup survey for the second year in office

Former first lady Michelle Obama is the most admired woman of 2018, according to a recent Gallup survey.

Obama beat out the long-running winner of the poll, Hillary Clinton, with 15 percent of the vote. Clinton, who notched only 4 percent of the vote this year, had won 17 years straight prior to 2018.

Oprah Winfrey came in second for women with 5 percent of the vote. The current first lady Melania Trump finished with 4 percent.

The Gallup survey of most admired has been conducted every year since 1946 with the exception of 1976. The survey asks Americans who around the world they admire the most.

Michelle Obama came in the second to Clinton three times before getting the top honor. This may be due in part to the former first lady currently being on tour to promote her new autobiography “Becoming.”

Former president Barack Obama topped the survey for most admired man for the 11th year in the row. Obama beat out President Donald Trump by 6 percentage points, marking only the 13th year in 72 of the survey that the incumbent president doesn’t win.

Trump, who has missed out on “most admired” for his second year as president, can potentially be only the second president in the history of the poll not to win the honor, according to Gallup. Former President Gerald Ford did not win during his time in office from 1974 to 1977.
