Major newspaper publication USA Today has named their most admired Woman and Man of 2015. President Barak Obama has topped the yearly Gallup Poll once again as the world’s most admired male of 2015. Obama has led the poll each of the last 8 years but this year’s 17 of 100% ranking is the lowest he has ever received according to David Jackson. The biggest surprise of the survey is the tied ranking for 2nd place between Pope Francis and Donald Trump.
The list also named presidential hopeful Hilary Clinton as the most admired woman, followed by Oprah Winfrey and Michelle Obama both tied for 3rd place, and Condoleezza Rice tied for 10th place with Sarah Palin and Ellen DeGeneres. Other notables who made the top 10 include Republican Party presidential front-runner Ben Carson and another presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders coming in at 4th and 6th places. Former presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton placed 8th and 9th on the list of top admired people.
