Barack And Michelle Obama Get Most Admired Man/Woman Titles

According to a Gallup poll, Former U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama takes the crown for being the most admired woman in the U.S. thus ending the 17-year reign of Hillary Clinton, the ex-presidential candidate, secretary of state and former first lady.

However, Mrs. Clinton is still a force to be reckoned with as she was placed third after talk-show host Oprah Winfrey who took the number two spot.

Former President Barack Obama was named the most admired man for the 11th year in a row while President Donald Trump was placed second for the fourth consecutive year.
