Most Admired Man And Woman 2018 Poll - Remember 2016 Presidential Poll?
According to Gallup, Michelle Obama beat Hillary Clinton as the woman most admired. Clinton has had this title for the last 17 years.
Oprah Winfrey was second, with Clinton and Melania Trump third.
The remainder of the top 10 most admired women this year includes Queen Elizabeth, Angela Merkel, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Ellen DeGeneres, Nikki Haley, Malala Yousafzai, Nancy Pelosi
Barack Obama was the winner among men for the 11th consecutive year, President Donald Trump ranks second for the fourth year in a row.
The remainder of the top 10 most admired men this year includes former President George W. Bush, Pope Francis, Bill Gates, Bernie Sanders, Bill Clinton, the Dalai Lama, Joe Biden, Elon Musk and Vice President Mike Pence.
Democrats and Republicans had dominant favorites for Most Admired Man, with 35% of Democrats naming Obama and 32% of Republicans naming Trump.
Independents were slightly more likely to name Obama (13%) than Trump (10%), while Republicans more often mentioned Obama (7%) than Democrats did Trump (1%).
I would like to know how Gallup determines the Party with which those percentages are obtained.
Michelle Obama was Democrats' favorite for Most Admired Woman, with 28% naming her, 7% for Winfrey and 7% for Clinton.
Obama also won among independents.
Melania Trump was the top finisher among Republicans, at 9%, with Obama and Winfrey getting 5% each.

Results are based on telephone interviews conducted December 3-12, 2018 with a random sample of –1,025— adults, ages 18+, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. (I wonder how many were millennials?)
For results based on this sample of national adults, the margin of sampling error is ±4 percentage points at the 95% confidence level.
Interviews are conducted with respondents on landline telephones and cellular phones, with interviews conducted in Spanish for respondents who are primarily Spanish-speaking.
Each sample of national adults includes a minimum quota of 70% cell phone respondents and 30% landline respondents, with additional minimum quotas by time zone within the region.
Landline and cell phone telephone numbers are selected using random digit dial methods.
Gallup obtained a sample for this study from Survey Sampling International.
Landline respondents are chosen at random within each household on the basis of which member has the next birthday.
Samples are weighted to correct for unequal selection probability, non-response, and double coverage of landline and cell users in the two sampling frames.
They are also weighted to match the national demographics of gender, age, race, Hispanic ethnicity, education, region, population density, and phone status (cell phone- only/landline only/both and cell phone mostly).
Demographic weighting targets are based on the March 2017 Current Population Survey figures for the aged 18 and older U.S. population.
Phone status targets are based on the July-December 2017 National Health Interview
Survey. Population density targets are based on the 2010 census.
All reported margins of sampling error include the computed design effects for weighting.
In addition to sampling error, question wording and practical difficulties in conducting surveys can introduce error or bias into the findings of public opinion polls.
