It certainly looks as if she is “like-able enough.”  You could hear that remark over and over as people were leaving the speech.

For the 20th time, Americans named Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton the MOST-ADMIRED woman living anywhere in the world.

Gallup further said that 13 percent of those who participated mentioned the former secretary of state when asked, “What woman/man that you have heard or read about, living today in any part of the world, do you admire most?  And who is your second choice?”

While first lady Eleanor Roosevelt was named most-admired woman a total of 13 times making her as the runner-up regarding 1st place rankings.  This is Clinton’s 14th consecutive year of being number 1 on the annual Gallup list longer than any other man or woman in the Washington-based consulting company’s history.

Since 1993, when she was first named most admired, Clinton has maintained the media’s attention with her many roles: First Lady, Senator, Secretary of State and twice presidential candidate.

Other women in this year’s top 10 included human rights leaders (Malala Yousafzai and Aung San Suu Kyi), talk show hosts (Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres) and other political figures (Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin).

Obama was named the most-admired man living anywhere in the world by a huge margin. 17 percent of those polled mentioned the commander-in-chief when asked the same question.

Pope Francis and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump were tied for second place, each listed at 5 percent.

Other admired men in the top 10 included presidents (George W. Bush and Bill Clinton), other presidential candidates (Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson) and religious leaders (the Dalai Lama and the Rev. Billy Graham).

These data are the result of telephone interviews conducted Dec. 2-6 using a random sample of 824 adults from all U.S. states and the District of Columbia. There was a minimum quota of 40 percent landline participants and 60 percent cellphone participants.

If you feel that Hillary Clinton deserves this award, then pass this article on to the people on your mailing list.  If not, contact the Gallup Organization.
