Hillary Clinton Named Most Admired Woman, Again

Former president Barack Obama and former candidate Hillary Clinton are the most admired man and woman in the USA, according to the Gallup poll. The poll, conducted by Gallup, has been conducted since 1946.

Oprah Winfrey, who some say is rumored to be considering a run for President, comes in as the third most admired woman this year. Of those 71 surveys, the incumbent president has won 58 times, the poll noted. "The incumbent president is the usual victor, since he is arguably the most prominent figure in the country - but when the president is unpopular, other well-known and well-liked men have been able to finish first". According to Gallup, which released its 2017 findings Wednesday, Obama is the first former president to win the title since President Dwight Eisenhower did in 1968. "The percent who name Clinton is the lowest percentage she has received since 2002, when 7 percent named her in another close first-place finish". He came in second past year as well, but with a slightly higher percentage-15 percent.

Former President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump remain the top two figures of "most admired" men. She has claimed the title 22 times, more than anyone else.

Eleanor Roosevelt is a distant second, getting 13 most honorable mentions in the poll. It is her 30th time making the top ten list.

Clinton "remains arguably more prominent than other contenders", Jones wrote in a blog post announcing the findings. "However, retaining that stature may be more challenging in coming years with her political career likely over", the poll stated online. About 40,000 people flooded Independence Mall in Philadelphia for Hillary Clinton's rally with her husband Bill, President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle at her side, a campaign aide said.
