Gallop just released the results of their final poll of 2016 when they announced that Americans chose Barack Obama over Donald Trump for the Most Admired Man for the year 2016.
The poll, taken from December 7-11, reveals that 22% of Americans choose Obama to only 15% for Trump. This will be Obama’s 9th year in a row winning the distinction, dating all the way back to 2008, before he took office (in the wake of deep dislike of then-president George W. Bush).
Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama swept positions 1 and 2 on the women’s side. Together, the two women racked up 20% of the vote. Coming in a 3 – with a distant 3% of votes – was German Chancellor, Angela Merkel.
This year’s results mark the 9th year in a row Obama and Hillary Clinton have taken the top spots. Congrats to President Obama and Secretary Clinton!
