Despite the fact that Donald Trump achieved more in 2016 than any other man on the planet, he did NOT win “Most Admired Man” of the year.
For the ninth year in a row, President Obama is the man Americans admire the most, according to a new Gallup Poll.
The president came out just seven percentage points ahead of President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday in what was Obama’s narrowest victory.
Obama won with 22 percent of the vote. Trump came in second with 15 percent, Pope Francis was third with 4 percent and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders came in fourth place with 2 percent of the vote.
On the female side, Americans named Hillary Clinton their Most Admired Woman. It was her 15th consecutive year at the top spot, and her 21st time overall at the top of the list, a Gallup record.
First lady Michelle Obama came in second among the most-admired women, followed by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres.
