A recent Gallup poll showed former president Barack Obama and former First Lady Hillary Clinton are considered the most admired man and woman in America respectively.
Gallup reports that Americans have named “Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton as the man and woman living anywhere in the world they admire most.”
It marks the 16th consecutive year that Clinton has been named as such, meaning if there are any well-intentioned women out there who’d like to grab the title next year, the bar has been set really, really low.
This is going to drive the haters absolutely wild: For the 16th consecutive year, Hillary Clinton is named by Americans the most admired woman in the world. https://t.co/An3lhT58Y0

Well, it’s not really driving anybody wild since nobody takes the poll seriously. The numbers on Clinton have lied – repeatedly, perpetually, often.
Had she truly been an admired person, she would not have struggled so mightily in the 2016 election against Trump.
In fact, the following meme featuring Trump helps to explain why this ‘most admired person’ poll is a sham.
Exactly. Why would anyone believe such a poll when Hillary is universally despised even by people in her own party?
Where have we seen tragically wrong data on Hillary before …
Oh you mean this poll? Got it… "Washington (CNN)Hillary Clinton's odds of winning the presidency rose from 78% last week to 91% Monday before Election Day, according to CNN's Political Prediction Market." https://t.co/K4k6e885de

In fact, that same polling firm, Gallup, recently reminded Clinton that the American people still intensely dislike her. Clinton’s popularity, bad as it has been in the many months following the election, reached historically low levels at the end of 2017.

So, the American people really, really dislike Clinton, but they still admire her … at a distance. Specifically, a distance far away from the White House.
It’s hard to imagine why Americans despise Clinton so much. Aside from the corruption, cold detachment from reality, and disdain for the everyday citizen, what’s not to like?
Obama, meanwhile, edged out Trump for most admired man who in turn topped Pope Francis. Obama had 17 percent of the vote to 14 percent for Trump, while the Pope came in at a distant third with 3 percent.
