As if 2019 couldn’t get any more interesting, a Gallup poll has revealed that our forever President Barack Obama and Donald Trump have tied for the most admired man in the U.S. this year.
The analytics company polled more than 1,000 Americans about the men and women they most admired in the world and we just want to know who they talked to.
But while Trump is new to this, Obama has been true to this! According to CNN, this year marks Obama’s 12th time as the most admired man in the U.S., Gallup reported.
Our forever FLOTUS Michelle Obama holds the top spot for the women in the U.S. and then Melania Trump follows this year. Getting back to the males, there was also a tie for third place with Elon Musk and former President Jimmy Carter. Bill Gates came in fourth.
Pope Francis, Senator Bernie Sanders, House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, the Dalai Lama and Warren Buffet rounded out the top 10 for men.
Other women who ranked high include 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg, Oprah Winfrey and Hillary Clinton.
For the second year in a row, Michelle Obama stole the top spot from Hillary Clinton, who finished first 22 times over 25 years, Gallup said.
According to Gallup, the votes for most admired men were mostly divided among party lines.
Needless to say, I wonder if these votes reflect how people will actually vote in 2020.
