Gallup Poll: Barack and Hillary, Most Admired Man and Woman

Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton Again Top Most Admired List

Clinton Most Admired Woman a record 16th time

by Jeffrey M. Jones
PRINCETON, NJ -- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama continue to be named by Americans as the Most Admired Woman and Most Admired Man living today in any part of the world. Clinton has been the Most Admired Woman each of the last 10 years, and Obama has been the Most Admired Man four years in a row. Oprah Winfrey, Michelle Obama, Sarah Palin, and Condoleezza Rice round out the top five Most Admired women, while the top five Most Admired men also include George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Billy Graham, and Warren Buffett.

Most Admired Woman, 2011
Most Admired Man, 2011
These results are based on a Dec. 15-18 USA Today/Gallup poll. In 1946, Gallup first asked Americans to name, without prompting, the person they most admire living in any part of the world. Since 1948, Gallup has asked Americans to name separately the Most Admired Man and Most Admired Woman, and has done so each year except in 1967 (when only Most Admired Man was asked) and 1976.

The Most Admired typically hail from the worlds of government, religion, business, entertainment, or humanitarian causes.

What I find surprising is that Newt is number 6 with 1% of the vote. What is there to admire about him?

Dave Miller said...

It seems as if you have to be President to make the grade on the mens side...

Jerry - Absolutely nothing.

Dave - Interesting DDE and RWR are #1 and #2 . That should tell the non thinking republicans of today a thing or two. ;)

Dave Miller said...

Good point RN... but todays GOP does not support the policies of either of those two leaders...

S that being true, what does a "principled/rational" conservative do?


You tell me...

Rational Nation USA said...

Dave - Paul, Huntsman, or Johnson. If your principled enough to jump the big "R" republican tent when neither Paul or Huntsman goes anywhere in the big "R" circus tent

Rational Nation USA said...

And your point is anon? Let me take a stab at it. You are simply , and effectively I must add, proving yet again your hateful and pathetic existence.
