Each year Gallup asks Americans to name the living man and woman they most admire. In 2013, 16% named Obama, a strong showing but down significantly from the 30% he drew in 2012. Former President George W. Bush and Pope Francis each earned 4%, while Bill Clinton and Billy Graham got 2% each.
2013 marked Hillary Clinton’s 18th time claiming the title, more than any woman in Gallup’s history. She earned 15% of the population’s vote this year, down from 21% last year.
Oprah Winfrey (6%), Michelle Obama (5%) and Sarah Palin (5%) fell behind Clinton.
