Obama edges Trump as most admired, Gallup finds

Obama has now been named the most admired man 10 times in a row, trailing only Dwight Eisenhower, who earned the distinction 12 times. She has claimed the title 22 times, more than anyone else.

Barack Obama has been named as the "most admired man" by Americans for the 10th year running, nearly a year after leaving the White House. To no surprise, there was a wide partisan split, with 35 percent of Republicans saying Trump was most admired man of the year, and 39 percent of Democrats picking Obama. The incumbent president has won 58 of those times. Former first lady Michelle Obama was second at 7 percent, while media mogul Oprah Winfrey was third at 4 percent. "However, retaining that stature may be more challenging in coming years with her political career likely over".

Former President Barack Obama has hit a milestone.

The survey from Gallup has taken place every year since 1946, and rounding off a decade at the top, the former USA president came out as America's choice again.

Previous incumbent commanders-in-chief who did not finish first include Harry Truman in 1946-1947 and 1950-1952, Lyndon Johnson in 1967-1968, Richard Nixon in 1973, Gerald Ford in 1974-1975, Jimmy Carter in 1980, and George W. Bush in 2008. Pope Francis took third place with 3% of respondents, and the rest of the top dozen men included politicians, religious figures, and billionaires. Each aforementioned president had approval ratings well below 50 percent. John McCain and Elon Musk scored 2 percent each.

Vice President Mike Pence, at 1 percent, finished tied for seventh alongside Sen.

First lady Melania Trump registered a 1 percent, which tied her with Condoleezza Rice, Nikki Haley, Duchess Kate Middleton and Beyonce.

However, a quarter of those surveyed failed to name any man or woman who they admired, while 10% of people opted to nominate a friend or family member.

Gallup's December poll found 17% of respondents named Obama the man they admired most, a dip from 22% of respondents saying the same past year.

Of course, this all falls well within the survey's margin of error, which was plus or minus 4 percentage points.
