As former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton prepares her expected campaign for president, a new Gallup poll has good news for her: she is the “most admired woman” in the world.
Clinton earned 12 percent from the Americans polled in the survey, followed by Oprah Winfrey at eight percent.
Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai earned third place.
Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice takes fourth place, beating out First Lady Michelle Obama, who fell to fifth. Angelina Jolie got sixth place followed by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin at seventh.
Princess Kate, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and Former First Lady Laura Bush round up the top ten.
President Barack Obama was cited as the most admired man among Americans, with a 19 percent rating.
Former President Bill Clinton placed third, beating minister Billy Graham at fourth and former President George W. Bush at fifth place.
Among “Republicans/Republican leaners,” Clinton earned third place on their list of most admired women, with five percent of respondents. That topped former Governor Sarah Palin in fourth place. Rice was in first place for Republicans, followed by Oprah Winfrey at second.
Republicans also gave Obama top billing as their most admired man, but he was tied at 8 percent by Pope Francis.
