Michelle Obama has been named the “Most Admired Woman” in the world for the 2nd year in a row.
In Gallup’s yearly poll, a random sample of 1,025 US citizens were asked to name “in an open-ended fashion, which man and woman living anywhere in the world they admire most.”
After the voting by these Americans, the ex-first lady took 10 percent of the vote, with Melania Trump coming in 2nd with 5 percent.
Hillary Clinton, Oprah Winfrey and Greta Thunberg got 3 percent each.
Barack Obama, ex-US president and Donald Trump, the current president, were tied for the title of most admired man in this year’s Gallup poll.
