SURVEY SAYS Obama, Hillary Most Admired Pool

Obama, Hillary Most Admired

America sure loves Hillary Clinton. For the ninth consecutive year, the Secretary of State placed first in USA Today and Gallup’s national poll seeking the most admired woman in the country. Clinton also topped the survey six times during the time as First Lady in the 1990s. On the men’s side, President Obama came in first for the third year in a row, garnering 22 percent of the vote. That’s less than the shares he received in 2008 and 2009, but well above the list’s second place finisher, George W. Bush. Behind Clinton were Sarah Palin with 12 percent and Oprah Winfrey with 11 percent. Last year, Clinton barely eked out a win over Sarah Palin, with one percent separating the two.
