Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton Together Again as 2010′s Most Admired
December 27, 2010
(ChattahBox US News)— The results of Gallup’s annual survey seeking the most admired men and women in the country, may look familiar. That’s because since 2008, President Obama has, and still does, top the list as the most admired man in America. And for nine-years running, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has led the pack as the most admired woman. Right behind Clinton is the former half-term governor of Alaska Sarah Palin, as the second most admired woman in America. And the second most admired man is former President George W. Bush.
But President Obama stands at the top of the list by a large margin, according to Gallup’s results.
“The Gallup survey released Monday indicates Obama leads the pack of former presidents, religious leaders and cultural icons for the third year in a row with 22 percent. He is followed by former President George W. Bush with five percent and former President Bill Clinton with four percent.”
Amazingly, two-percent of those polled chose Fox News’ conspiracy theorist and hatemonger Glenn Beck, as the most admired man in America, tied with Jimmy Carter, the Rev. Billy Graham and Pope Benedict XVI.
Hillary Clinton, has not only held the number one spot for nine-years in a row, but she also has appeared on the list for two decades.
“Hillary Clinton is the Most Admired Woman this year, her ninth consecutive year at No. 1. In fact, the order of the top six women named in 2010 is identical to 2009, with Sarah Palin, Oprah Winfrey, Michelle Obama, Condoleezza Rice, and Queen Elizabeth following Clinton.”
The USA Today/Gallup telephone poll surveyed a random sample of 1,019 adults.
